A Visit to Phantom Ranch in Grand Canyon National Park
In Grand Canyon National Park the only lodging below the Rim is at Phantom Ranch. Designed in 1922 by Mary Colter at a time when women were generally not allowed in such professions, Phantom Ranch is little changed today. There are only two ways to get there: you can walk the 10 miles and 5,000 feet downhill, or you can ride a mule the same distance. It’s just a matter of what part of your body you want to have hurting.
In January 2019 four Dallas Sierra Club members, Bill and Sue Greer and Mike and Diana Rawlins spent 3 nights at Phantom Ranch. This program will tell you a little about that visit. It snowed the night before we headed down so the hike was a little more “interesting” than expected. You can’t really appreciate Phantom Ranch without knowing a little of its history so we will talk about that a bit. And we will give you some hints about how you can win the lottery for a visit to Phantom Ranch!
Everyone is welcome. FREE! You don't have to be a Sierra Club member. Just show up. We'd love to meet you.
Our General Meeting starts at 7:00 pm, but come at 6:30 for snacks, information and fellowship. Click over to our General Meeting page for more information and a map.
