Our cabin at Phantom Ranch for two nights… that was The Plan. As explained in the chapter, “My Dinner with Jeff,” in the novel, architect Mary Colter, in 1920, specified river rocks and pinions from the forest floor as the prime building materials for Phantom Ranch. The remoteness of this place makes it difficult and expensive to bring materials down from the rims. Colter’s design has held up over the past century which contributes unique noire to this remote outpost.
