Mark and Jeff with Brass Mule
Mark and Jeff pose with the brass mule in the lobby of the lodge on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It is a tribute to the mules who have carried riders and supplies down the trails all these years. August 9, 1982.
The Lodge, North Rim Grand Canyon
We had a wonderful breakfast here with a grand view of the Grand Canyon. After taking most of our meals in the campgrounds, it was pleasant to sit down to a breakfast of fresh buckwheat pancakes and look out over the canyon. The boys seemed to enjoy it as much as Brenda and I did, so the pleasant memory of that occasion lingers. August 9, 1982.

Rod and Mark, North Rim
Mark helps Rod set up tripod for group shots on North Rim, Grand Canyon. On the ground is Rod's backpack full of camera gear - the others had to carry the lunch, his pack was full of camera stuff. But he had to be alert for the everpresent squirrels like the one below. August 9, 1982.
Golden Mantled Ground Squirrel
On the North Rim of the Grand Canyon as on the south, there were an abundance of squirrels looking for handouts. I take this one to be a golden mantled ground squirrel and I don't believe we saw one on the South Rim. August 9, 1982.
