Picks and Pans Review: Annual Camel Races, Virginia City, Nev. (sept. 12-13).

UPDATED 07/13/1981 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/13/1981 at 01:00 AM EDT

In the 1880s camels hauled salt, used in processing silver, across the desert. Now they run a token 75-foot race. (Actually they tend to bolt in all directions if they move at all—but it's fun, and photographable.)
