Grand Canyon 'muled' in 1924


My grandparents, Kate and Darwin Morse, 'muled' the Grand Canyon in 1924! At the bottom of the Canyon, they had to walk across a wire suspension bridge to the other side of the river and catch their mule that was sent across by the guides. If you didn't catch your mule, you had to walk back up out of the Canyon!!
