Jack hangs out on Paseo del Norte in downtown Taos. He has his picture taken by all the tourists. You can post his picture online.

I pass by Jack at least once a week. I always say hello and pat him on the nose. He is one of many icons in Taos.

Jack hangs out near my favorite Western Wear. Its tricky to wave at Paul and retrieve my grip on the leash in time to tip my hat at Jack as we walk past each day.

A good social media sharing opportunity if you want to take a picture with a statue. The craftsmanship of the Burro is nice too. Don't go out of your way to find this.

It wwis a rather mundane statue that sits outside of a shop. There isn't really anything else to say about it.mi don't think it is meant to be an attraction as much as sidewalk decoration for a store.

This is a genuine work of art and definitely worth making the trip to El Dorado Plaza. Jack isn't much for conversation, but he can hold his booze.
