(AZ Family)   Broken pipes cause a water shortage in the Grand Canyon. If only there was some kind of seemingly-endless liquid source nearby powerful enough to carve the earth's most massive gorge down through a mile of dirt and rock   (azfamily.com) divider line 6

If only you wouldn't have to carry it up a mile vertically on donkeys, Subby. You're never been there, have you?

The article says that the shortage is at Phantom Ranch, which is at the bottom of the canyon.


Phantom ranch is a very cool place. It's a dozen or so limestone buildings at the bottom of the canyon. The buildings are probably 100 years old; built out of local materials.

The thing that makes it really cool is, everything there goes down on mules. The trash comes back up on mules. Everything from the forks to the bunks came down on a mule; as there is no other cost effective way to get anything to the bottom.

/ you can book a night at the bottom; the reservation service opens 6 months in advance and fills in days if not hours.

// if you do go to the canyon, do not attempt to go rim to river and back in one day; it's not Disney world and people still die on the trail

Silly Subby, everyone knows there's no water in the river because of all those evil people living in cities drank it up.
