Kiva – Popsicle
I sent this letter ahead of a hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon – hoping to retrieve it down there. It was there when I arrived a couple of weeks later : ) . Came down on the back of a mule on the Bright Angel trail. The stamp is of what I often wish for in that heat –> an orange popsicle. Note the legal 2 cent Grand Canyon stamp in the lower right hand corner. This time it was MY stamp which got cancelled not the “real” one : ).
Here is a shot of the mule train coming into Phantom in the late morning:
