Sara the Camel

Sara is definitely a girl camel, complete with udder. She's in a pretty park hedged with lilacs right next to a farm implement dealer, near where Hwy 2 and Hwy 5 intersect. Hwy 5 goes through Spruce Woods Provincial Park, which is where the Spirit Sands are -- Manitoba's only official desert. Hence the camel.

Sara the Camel

Sara is in her own quarter-acre, well-maintained park. The local Community Development Corporation keeps the bushes and grass trimmed, allowing for an unobstructed view. I visited around noon on a clear summer day and had great light for photos from most angles.

Sara the Camel

Sara the camel is located in Glenboro, 10 km south of Spruce Woods Provincial Park. She faces the Manitoba Desert, and if you want to have your picture taken with her, be prepared to look up....because you'll only come up to her knees!
