For those who live outside of the Beehive State, the 24th of July is officially called Pioneer Day … which celebrates the entry of Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847.  Pioneer Day is generally a day of parades, fireworks, rodeos, and other festivities in most of Utah and in parts of neighboring states with strong LDS populations, which help commemorate the event. Be aware this is a state holiday so most government offices and many businesses are closed.  Although the holiday has strong links to the LDS Church, it is officially a celebration for everyone, regardless of faith and nationality, who are or consider themselves to be pioneers.

Camels and the desert go together like, well, camels and the desert!  But who would have expected camels in Southern Utah where THIS desert and THIS species are hardly synonymous!  Still, if you have never been up close and personal with or ridden a camel – even if you have – the Camel Safari attraction in nearby Mesquite, NV is certain to be an experience you’ll not soon forget.  In addition to other activities, you can take a camel ride through the Nevada desert (led by a camel safari handler) with a tour of the ranch and the chance to meet “your” camel before you ride.  There is also a camel encounter where you will learn everything you ever wanted to know about these amazing mammals with long legs, a big-lipped snout and a humped back.  The one-hour event features cultural and historical information, including anatomy, personality and training.  There will also be a chance to feed, pet and bottle feed a baby camel, when available.
