Oatman began as a tent camp soon after two prospectors struck a $10 million gold find in 1915, though the area had been already settled for a number of years. Wild burros roam the town and can be hand-fed carrots and "burro chow," both readily available in all the stores in town. The town has the an old west feel, dirt roads and stores line the streets.
Oatman was perfect for both these two little animal lover girls of mine...these cute guys walked right up to our car and stuck their head into our car in search of food.
Justin was freaked out about that it was pretty funny.
It was a great time to go because their were tons of babies and they are the cutest ones! They were so sweet and let all the kids pet them... and chase them around.
and scare the crap out of them
My favorite part was the babies and stickers they put on all the babies heads and talking with the locals about the town....old towns like this intrigue me.
This must have been an interesting stop when Route 66 was at its busiest. It was definitely a different and enjoyable town.
