While recently traveling in Colorado, we stopped by the weekly Saturday Farmer’s Market in the small town of Minturn (near Vail). After parking we began our walk to the market, but before reaching this entertaining venue our attention was diverted to a crowd around a store selling wooden goods. When the crowd cleared slightly, we saw two alpacas standing there, clearly the center of attention.
The owner of the wool shop very cleverly kept these alpacas as a crowd magnet, and obviously it worked. They were awfully cute animals, from their teddy bear faces, to their little bleating cries. Too bad I’m allergic to wool.
