Eat Your Heart Out
So donkeys played a serious role in the mining of the Cerrillos Hills. Not only that, but they're the cutest hooved animal. People will tell you it's the horse, but horses are basic animals, and those people have basic tastes. I mean, just try looking deep into the angelic eyes of a burro during the Cerillos Hills State Park Donkey Hike without having your heart turn to jelly. On Sunday, June 11, you can walk the trail with nature's kittens (we're still talking about donkeys, here) and see the tack and gear they wore and learn how they helped miners. The hike costs $5 cash (exact change) or check per vehicle. Those with a valid New Mexico State Parks pass get in free. Meet in the main parking lot, a half mile north of Cerrillos village on CR 59 before 10am. The hike lasts until noon. (Joshua Lee)
