Grand Canyon Metz Car

Posted by on August 1, 2015
In 1914 Mr. L. Wing and a friend took their 22 horsepower Metz car to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, having first departed Los Angeles and crossing deserts south of Death Valley. They had few roads to follow,  no GPS or cell phones, and still had to cross three mountain ranges as well. After 587 grueling miles, they first went to the El Tovar Hotel and scouted possible routes to the bottom, but to no avail. They found a gorge at Peach Springs and made the 42 miles trip down to the river and back the next day. Metz1914.MetzNowMetz2 Metz3
