Leadville burro racing pays homage to the city’s mining days
LEADVILLE, Colo. — In the shadow of the still-snowy Rocky Mountains is an event that pays homage to the wild west: the Leadville Boom Days Pack Burro Race. The festival is celebrated in the incorporated city with the highest elevation in the U.S. But earlier this month, visitors to Leadville were focused on the burro race.
