Camel herd

We hiked way up on the hill above Darajat. A dozen camels were grazing peacefully. And even one baby camel!

Lots of other animals to see at the Camera Critters Sunday meme.

I always look forward to and enjoy your posts, because I get to see things I wouldn't normally see. This is SO cool!

Lovely photo! Did you ride the camels, too?

The only camels I have seen on camera critters. I agree with all the above, so nice to visit, because these are animals I can't see in the wild, just the wildlife park.

Thanks everybody.
Musings, these were out-in-the-wild camels, not tourist ones, so no riding. Anyway, we had to get down off the mountain before total darkness.
Edo, the man in the framed photo and his wife or wives came to the area 150 years ago. The whole village and chamulla started with them.
Sabine, how could you ever leave Neuchatel?! It is so beautiful and charming. I lived as a volunteer with the Sisters of Grandchamp near Areuse 2002 to 2003 and then for shorter stays. See www.grandchamp.org. Part of my heart is still there.
