Attention Mule History Buffs!
If you love mule history and stories from days gone by, this is a "must have" for your collection!
I just finished watching Video Mike's new video entitled "Mules on Snowshoes". It is a captivating film documenting the story of a group of mule packers in the mountains of northern California in the 1800s.
The hour-and-a-half long film is packed with fascinating stories, mule packer humor, and enthralling photos of old time master mule packers and their dependable pack mules. Enjoy the scenic views and marvel at the feats these mules and their packers accomplished. Soak in the thrill of what these brave and hard working teams did day-in and day-out, through rain or shine (and sometimes through enormous snow drifts) as they transported the mail, other freight, building supplies, and many other unusual cargos through the mountains in a time before there were modern conveniences like trucks, phones and the Internet.
If you love history and hearing tales from the past about how the old time mule men used to work and live, you won't want to miss this video!
And incase you are wondering, yes, they really did put snowshoes on the mules - mule snowshoes!
