Family hike with the wife, kids, and dog. Our main goal was to spot some of the trail's namesake wild burros for the first time and I am pleased to say we accomplished our goal. We actually started from the Pipeline Trailhead (as parking was scarce at the first spot i tried) and just headed on the slow steady downhill that quickly crosses the road before skirting the side of the on the hills on it's descent.

The burros were up on the ridge in several small groups and a couple of loaners off grazing on their own. I was surprised at how big a few of them were-- sort of skinny and lanky but much taller than I had imagined-- much closer to horse-height (however many hands that equal, I am not sure.)

We hiked until the sun and terrain became too oppressive for my youngest daughter and then turned back-- waving a farewell to a bunch of jack asses up on the hill as we went :)
