The Western Pack Burro Association is looking for <br>Photographers

The Western Pack Burro Association is looking for Photographers to help photograph their summer races. The races are held in historic mining towns throughout Colorado in honor of the old miners that would race their burros over the mountain passes during the gold and silver rush days. All experience levels are welcome to participate. It is a great opportunity to develop skills. The races take place in very scenic areas and provide plenty of opportunities to practice artistic skills. The burros provide some really fun photo opportunities as well, as they tend to have a mind of their own. In past years some of the photographers photos have even been published in magazines. Here are links to sign up for each race. Sign up for as few or as many as you wish. If the sign up for a race is full contact Barbara Gertz at and she can get you registered. Also a few of the races require some travel, if you are interested but would like to carpool to the race also contact Barbara and she can help to connect you to other members that are attending.

Here are the links to all the races. Feel free to contact Barbara with any questions you may have.
