[pct-l] Strange sight



This camel belongs to a friend of mine who has spent the last few years
hiking a section of the PCT each year with different pack animals every
year.
At the end of this adventure he plans to write a book, partly about his
adventures and partly evaluating the different types of stock.
He liked the camel personally, but said he (the camel) walked the same speed
as his daughter, both of whom were going too fast for him so he spent the
entire trip being pushed down and up the trail by this huge beast.
He carried 250 pounds on the camel and apparently a camel can carry about
1,000 pounds fully loaded.
I have had many people tell me about camel sightings on the trail this year.
