Didn't find any of the camels on our trip. I did think this was an interesting bit of history.

Those poor camels must have had a hard life. Interesting story.

Very interesting... I had heard about this previously, but now I am inspired -- gotta go Google it and see what other details I can find...

I can't decide if this is hilarious (camels in Nevada) or sad (abandoned camels in Nevada), but a great bit of history.

Believe it or not, my oldest said she had heard something about that. Hooray!! The history lessons are paying off.

Never heard of this before. Isn't it amazing what we learn and teach one another??

We still have camels roaming in Australia's deserts too, for the same reasons. I saw a few...
