20 Mule Team Days
20 Mule Team
The twenty mule team, a mule skinners nightmare come true or a skilled teamsters dream come true. However one pictured it, it was a ride that none of the drivers ever forgot. Bruce Morgan was one of the last drivers of the famed 20 Mule Team during the Inyo County centennial in 1949. As co-owner of Mt. Whitney Pack Trains with Ike Livermore, Bruce enjoyed an exciting life of mule packing and team driving which many of us latter year packers have come to envy.

Bruce Morgan at Lone Pine Lake

Here is a picture of Bruce on a lazy day pack trip at Lone Pine Lake on the Mt. Whitney Trail. This had to have been a staged photograph because rarely did a packer find himself with one lone mule. You could roll your own smoke, play solitaire, sing 'til your hearts content and never fear a wreck with only one mule. What a life, Bruce!
