Alligator Preserves Episode 37: Everybody Loves A Donkey Tale!

Laurel recounts the craziest race her husband, Mike, ever participated in: A pack burro race up Mosquito Pass and back during a Leadville Boom Days weekend. He raced with a rent-an-ass from Curtis Imrie (RIP) and met the legendary Ken Chlouber for the first time as well. This is a crazy-ass story with some poignant moments.

Curtis Imrie (RIP) and I were extras in The Weather Channel’s documentary “Dead of Winter: The Donner Party,” filmed in part in Leadville.
