Photo of the Week Mule TrainTo get supplies to Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, this train of mules slowly works its way down the steep slopes to deliver the goods. I can imagine those being long trips, but how else would you get what you needed to the bottom. This photo captures the mules winding around the dusty corner as the sun is setting.
