Guest Blog: Welcome to the wonderful world of wild burros

By Caroline Christie

Guest Blog: Meet Herbie, A Black Mountain Burro

By PJ Kaszas

Black Mountain HMA sits in the northeast corner of Arizona. Black Mountain is the largest HMA in Arizona comprised of 1.1 million acres of desert terrain much of it characterized by its volcanic past, now steep mountains, mesas, sheer drops, rocky foothills and sandy washes. Most of the time it’s hot, dry, and windy. But not when I arrived.
