One of my favorite outings from Las Vegas is a drive out to Deer Creek Road. It is so magical how you can quickly transform from the desert to mountains. And the drive only takes about 45 minutes from the Vegas Strip, depending on the traffic. The views here are gorgeous, and you just might run across some wild donkeys or horses, which are native to the area.
It has been a while since I met with these two curious and friendly donkeys. We hung out for a bit, they allowed me to take some photos, and then we bid farewell as I began my walk at Berry Springs Park and Preserve. I finished as the sun was setting, and called it a day.
The other cool thing about Berry Creek Park and Preserve is that they have two donkeys. They have a large corral for them with lots of hay and water. While I was there, a family with small children came up and fed them. The donkeys came to the fence to check me out and one of them allowed me to pet him. That was nice of him. 🙂
