Had a lot of fun yesterday, we took 3 donkeys up Mt Lemmon for Summerhaven's annual 4th of July parade.
Our day started at 3:30am because the donkeys we were taking had to have enough time to eat their breakfast. We went ahead and fed all the donkeys, our neighbor Jorja that picks up poo let the ones that stayed home out when she came over to clean pens.
Left before 7am, headed to Tucson to pick up India and her little girl Nellie and started up the mountain. John and I haven't been up there in years, the difference between down here on the desert floor and up there is amazing. It's like being in an alpine forest, lots of trees, although they don't have as many trees as they did before the horrible fire they had a few years ago. Our friend Leigh Anne, that asked us to walk in the parade, lost her cabin in the fire and has since built a new one that is rustic and looks like it's been there for a long time.
We got there in time to get everyone dressed and in line for the parade.
|Pretty long parade and lots of people along the route.|
|This is Leigh Anne and Jasmine, doing the Donkey Dance, she's one in a million and always has fun, no matter what's she doing.|
