So our hearts skipped a few beats when, as we were hiking through the canyon, we began to hear a distant rumble. Look at the sky. Nothing. Could it be? Should we move to high ground? As we began to step to the side, the rumble more clearly became clicks, as in, the clicks of hooves on rocks. We had encountered our first mule train. At one point on our hike in, we were pulling over for the mules, who have the right-of-way, about every 15 minutes.
On our journey in, we also paused to take a photo beneath a giant rock that could have flattened us instantly if the earth had decided to sneeze, or even hiccup, in that moment.
