HERB RINGER at the Grand Canyon #1 (from 1952)

Herb Ringer and his parents made many trips to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon over the years. Here are a few of those images…

Herb took several mule rides to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, alwys with wrangler Sherm Eberle. Here his group pauses on the Tonto Plateau…

A typical ‘busy’ summer day at Bright Angel Lodge in 1952. Note the man in the straw boater…

Headed down the Bright Angel Trail. Sherm rides lead; Herb is second from the top.  Emery Kolb took this photograph, as he did all the mule rides, from his studio.


The Ringer ‘Woody’ near Hopi House at the South Rim.


Herb’s gear—Herb even took the time to arrange his camp supplies on the rock during a break from the trail…looks like an LL Bean commercial.


Sherm Eberle…


Herb’s mother and father–Joseph & Sadie Ringer
