Loading up the Pack Mule - Debbie Grayson Lincoln

6 X 8 oil on MDF board
$125 includes shipping and insurance
I met a hunting guide on a recent camping trip near Creede, Colorado and he graciously let me 
photograph him as he worked to load up his mules. This painting is of "Ace", one of the pack mules.
Greg had a set of scales in his trailer that he used to weigh the packs before he balanced them on the pack saddles. I was impressed by how well the load was distributed on the mules as I know what can happen when weight shifts on the back of an animal. It can be scary - especially on the narrow trail up the mountain.
