Tucson's Reid Park Zoo has just introduced camel rides! As you can see, you are seated in a secure frame and a trained animal handler guides you around. No worries the camel will gallop away with you! FUN!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
