Yes, Virginia , there is a Santa Claus. And out in front of the Tractor Supply store on Hwy. 60, there was a real, live Camel. And it came from Nickerson, KS, all the way to Wickenburg, AZ.
The dude behind the hump was one of a group of seven friends, most of whom paid their money, and takes their chances. And while I didn't witness imminent danger, I heard an lot of yee-haw commotion coming from the enthusiastic crowd.
And, moi? No chance of a ride for me. Dismounted the Giant just long enough to take a foto to share with Blog followers: there are dromedaries in the AZ desert. And they come all the way from KS to strut their camel stuff.
