Riding a Mule to the Bottom of the Grand Canyon
By Natalie Grant, USA, October 2012
There are many reasons why a Grand Canyon visitor might choose to ride a mule down the trails. The altitude is 7,000 ft (2,100 m) above sea level, making overly strenuous climbs even more of a sweat-a-thon; there may be those in your group that would prefer a more unique experience than the average trail walk; and, probably the best reason—it’s a chance to ride a mule!
It can take five or six hours to ride down, depending on the size and speed of your groupFlickr.
