Matschie's Tree Kangaroo
The Bactrian camel native to Asia has two humps. Notice the green algae clinging to the side of this camel. The day we visited the zoo it was hot and humid and many of the animals were taking cover in shade or otherwise attempting to stay cool. We were not able to see some of the animals because they were out of site in their habit. The Bactrian camels were cooling off in a pond covered with algae.

Unless something noteworthy occurs, this will be our last post for this trip. We are at the North Sioux City KOA mainly because we have an appointment Monday at the Blue Ox factory in Pender, NE. This area is referred to by the local media as Siouxland because there are three cities in different states in a single metropolitan area. They are Sioux City, IA, North Sioux City, SD, and South Sioux City, NE. Yesterday we drove to the nearest Walmart using "Ok Google", a distance of 8.7 miles, and were welcomed to Iowa and Nebraska by the female voice as we made our way there.
We will start the journey home on Tuesday making approximately 300 mile daily jaunts and expect to arrive Friday afternoon.
