Awesome deb! I would love to visit the Grand Canyon someday. I'd like to do the donkey tour. Watching YouTube vids of it though I don't know if I could handle it lol.
I'm right now reading a book 'Finding Everett Ruess', interesting but kinda dull. He wandered alone with burros when he was a teenager through the southwest in the early 1930s doing paintings and blockprint engravings. He ventured deep into what was then little known 'wilderness' of the Grand Canyon and other sites. He disappeared without a trace in the Utah desert at age 20.
LOL... MULES not donkeys. unless things have changed. Mules are horse sized. and are as sure footed as donkeys.
Believe me if you havent ridden you WILL be sore in places you never thought could get sore... its a 28 mile round trip. Many experienced riders would be sore... though there is a lodge down at the bottom that you can book a room for the night. I believe reservations are filled early in the year
