Would you like to ride a mule to the bottom of the Grand Canyon during the winter time? Come along as our family of four climbs aboard trusty mules who carry us along narrow trails and around hair-raising switchbacks. It was a Christmas trip to remember.
Descending into the canyon in December meant there was plenty of snow along the way. The temperature, snowfall, and snow accumulation were ever-changing.
Travel with us down Bright Angel Trail, across the Suspension Bridge over the Colorado River, and spend an overnight at Phantom Ranch. In the morning, up and out on the South Kaibab Trail, with sightings of bighorn sheep.
Back in 2013 I self-published this short e-book about riding a mule to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. It was an unforgettable experience I wanted to share with others, and I also liked the DIY part — learning the mechanics of publishing and using photos. You’ll notice that all my family members are credited as photographers. We had such a blast.
At the time I was also working on my memoir. Knowledgeable people advised me that publishing houses would avoid self-published authors, so I unpublished it. But the world of publishing has changed — or maybe I’ve changed, with three traditionally-published books under my belt!
“Grand Canyon by Mule” is a fun little book and who couldn’t use some vicarious travel right now? Christmas and the winter holidays are coming and I daresay we’d all like to experience a change of scene and bit of adventure. So I’ve made this e-book available again.
It’s perfect if you’re looking for something light and easy to read.
