David and I day-trip to explore the Chicken Corners area southwest of Moab along the Green River. We stopped at Clogged Bridge and Little Bridge Arches, which are right next to the dirt road.
There are lots of camel tracks in the area but we never get to see any. Apparently the camels are left over from a camel expedition effort that has their ranch and headquarters in that area. Camels are allowed to run free because the terrain will keep them fairly confined anyway… unless they swim the Green River.
Camels? In Utah? Sure — why not?
While there was a lot of open and beautiful country out there, it really wasn’t “arch country”. The trip was a good chance to see some new country though.
