Photographer's Note

If you dont like walking and hiking in the heat by chance (or are little bit lazy:), you can use this "mule taxi" to get into the Canyon.

Mule trips have to be however booked in advance, beacuse the waiting list is so loooong.. :)
There are some restrictions: mule riders must not weigh more than 91 kg, fully dressed, must be at least 140 cm in height, should not be afraid of heights or large animals. If you satisfy all this conditions, lets go! :)

To be honest, i felt sorry when i saw this animals, "working" so hard in that intense heat..
But one rider explained me and said "this working realtionship between people and animal is beautiful, we work together to maintain the trail and keep each other in business"...
:)
