We were exploring the Gold King Mine in Jerome when I saw these unexpected occupants. To many, the site of a mother hen and her chicks is not a particularly unusual sight. But to me, a city-dweller with a small-town heart, I found this little chicken family absolutely adorable.
There is even a donkey named Pedro, guardian of the ghost town, but alas, he had gone wandering around looking for lady donkeys that day. I will meet him next time.
It’s the little things in life, isn’t it?
