bright angel trailhead


Most of these postcards will arrive with a “mailed by mule” stamp on them from Phantom Ranch, the lodge at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, which packs everything in and out by mule. The three I didn’t send there made the whole hike with me, from North Kaibab trailhead at 5:30am to the Bright Angel trailhead at 7:00pm. 

(First picture is from the North Rim lodge day before the hike. All the postcard photos, except the last, were taken at Phantom Ranch while the breeze tried to blow them away and squirrels tried to steal our gorp.)
