Mule Days, Bishop, California

Mule Days take place every year in Bishop, California, with donkeys, mules, and horses descending on this small town from all over the USA and even Canada. This year's participation was only slightly smaller than usual, given the outbreak of the equine virus, deadly to horses but not mules, although the latter can carry and spread the disease.

See other reflections at James' REFLECTIONS WEEKEND.

There is a day for almost everything!

I think I'd like a couple of sacks of Black Hills Gold and I'll be happy to ride off on a mule.

What Tash said! This looks like fun (a deadly equine virus notwithstanding, of course). Been playing catch-up with your posts again, and loving the big skies over Bishop. BTW, I do know what you call more than one pelican, but from now on, a squadron it is. :~}

Funny mule, mon amie... The equine virus is quite tragic and I hope that the virus can be contained without spreading further.

A squadron of pelicans? We used to play the "what do you call a" game with my girls on trips until we laughed ourselves silly. Hope you are doing well, my friend.

This virus is in Utah and Arizona too if we are speaking about the same one!
