(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Ruby Bolton Brown Goes to the Grand Canyon 1914

Maternal grandmother RUBY BOLTON BROWN rides a mule down the trail to the bottom of the Grand Canyon circa 1914.  This was just prior to her marrige to my grandfather. RUBY was accompanied by her father FRANK RICARD BROWN, who took this photograph.  Others in the photo are unknown.  Copy of original, my collection.

Have a great day!

What a great photo! I didn't know tourists had been taking these mule rides in the Grand Canyon for that long!

You've got to be kidding. Never in a million years would I do that. I'm not like her or Becky Wiseman (another blogger, who just did it). But many thanks for showing how brave she was.

Fantastic photo.

Even though I had horses for years, there is only one way I am going into the Grand Canyon - on my own two feet.

Oh my gosh, Betty, this must be the coolest ancestor photo ever!
