Please ask consignors lots of questions, go to their homes and ride the mules, be at Mule Days all three days to thoroughly watch the mules, and pick the ones that best fit you.
Ebenezer Bryce settled in the valley just below the canyon in 1870. Bryce was a shipbuilder who journeyed west with Brigham Young and the Mormon pioneers to assist in the construction of buildings essential to community life throughout the new land. Bryce lived here for only five years, yet in that time the people who knew him knew the canyon as Bryce’s canyon. Bryce was a pragmatic man, constructing roads to facilitate lumber transport and surveying the route for a 10-mile irrigation ditch running from the top of the plateau to the valley that would later lead to larger, more permanent settlements. If he had romantic ideas concerning the land on which he struggled to survive, they are lost in history. All he is known to have said concerning this striking scene behind his home is, “It’s a hell of place to lose a cow.”
