Camel string

Camel string moving through the Denison Ranges

This photo demonstrates nicely the tremendously relaxing nature of a camel string at work.

Each riding saddle carries a sleeping swag (canvas bedroll) and everyone's personal gear is loaded into the bags on the side of the saddles.

Note how the second camel (Wahbi) is pulling back. He is not used to carrying a weighty load but at 6 years he is old enough to load up a little. He'll get used to this as he heads toward an interesting life in a commercial camel string. His initial reluctance will quickly give way to a willing acceptance and he will become a valuable member of the camel team.

New camels must prove themselves over several years as a pack camel before they are allowed to take a rider.
