For the first time in 50 years, an entire mule team and original wagon were brought to Harmony Borax Works in Death Valley in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Death Valley 49er's Encampment. The team is still property of the Pacific Borax Co. These pictures were taken on November 13, 1999 during a demonstration that showed how the team turned corners. This photo was taken from Harmony Borax Works.
