Mule ride in the Grand Canyon

There are two ways to reach the bottom of the Grand Canyon within Grand Canyon National Park. One is to hike down, the other is to ride a mule to the bottom as part of a tour. While it is logical to think that the mule ride is the easier way to the bottom, people who have done both say that they are more sore after the mule ride down than the hike down. Regardless, as this mule was making the trip back up from the bottom of the canyon (at a much faster rate than we were hiking at, I might add), his rider seemed to be enjoying the trip just fine.
