Sara the camel has one hump. That makes her a dromedary or Arabian camel. Sara stands in a small Manitoba town called Glenboro. She is about 17 feet tall..
We visited her as we drove from Winnipeg, Manitoba to Regina, Saskatchewan. Sara has been in Glenboro since 1978. A camel was chosen to represent the Spirit Sands sand dunes in nearby Spruce Woods Provincial Park.
You would not expect to find camels or a desert as you drive across Manitoba. You might not be surprised to find this grey haired Romeo (pictured above) at Winnipeg's Assiniboine Park Zoo. The camel in the picture is a Bactrian or two-humped camel.
Next door to Sara is the Spruce Woods Inn. It is named after the provincial park and has soft drinks, fresh coffee and the best hamburgers in town. Between the inn and the camel we had two reasons to pass through Glenboro on our road trip. But only one hump.
