Award-winning landscape and nature photographer Tom Brownold specializes in capturing the magnificence of the American West. In this presentation about his project “The Grandest Ride,” he offers a unique glimpse into the world of the Grand Canyon mules. He shares the daily behind-the-scenes routines of the mule wranglers, the historic livery barn at the South Rim, the experience of the trail ride down to Phantom Ranch and the lives of the mules themselves.

Brownold’s work has been published in Arizona Highways, Backpacker, Geographical Magazine, Nature’s Best, Outside Magazine, American Archeology, Skiing Magazine and Western Horseman. His images also appear in corporate and private collections, books and calendars.

Following the program, Brownold will sign his book “The Grandest Ride” in the museum store.
