Senior Grand Canyon Adventure: The Mule Ride That Never Was PDF Print E-mail

We looked forward to the experience as we drove to Arizona’s Grand Canyon last summer. Usually all motel rooms, cabins and dorms are sold out weeks in advance throughout the entire Canyon area. We arrived to check in a day earlier than our reservation called for, and thought we’d have to spend the night in our car. However, we were lucky to be put up in a very basic dorm cabin with the communal bathroom down the hall.

The dorm has a fantastic location, because the Canyon edge was only about 20 feet out the back door. If we had been sleepwalkers, it could have been disastrous. Another mistake was that we thought we’d just saunter over to the start of the Bright Angel Trail bright and early the next morning and join the famous Canyon mule ride.

As our ship passed close by Alcatraz, we could see Navy landing craft unloading armed Marines as they stormed onto the rocky shore.
