Kiva – Rapid 1
During my son and I’s rafting of the Grand Canyon some years ago, we went thru many rapids. I loved the soft green color of the water against the hard dark rocky shores.
During the full length of the Canyon there is only one place you can use a normal toilet and get a meal — Phantom Ranch —- about 1/3 of the way along.
Here is a picture of the box in the canteen at Phantom Ranch where incoming mail is put. It is primarily used by the river guides to receive postcards & letters from their girlfriends / boyfriends. They often don’t have another address all season. Some of the letters have a hint of perfume……. : ) I suspect most of the Canyon hikers though don’t even realize the box / service exists…..but being a homing pigeon guy — I figured something like it had to exist, found it and have used it several times to pick up mail I sent to myself,
by me in Bellingham to myself —–> picked up at Phantom Ranch in the River Mail Box in 2007.
