America's Quirkiest Post Offices

Quirkiest Post Offices: Peach Springs

Mark Peterson/CORBIS

Peach Springs Post Office, Peach Springs, AZ

Since at least the 1960s, the Peach Springs Post Office (outfitted with a 10-by-12-foot walk-in refrigerator) has gone to great lengths to deliver packages to a tiny Native American village, Supai, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Here’s how: five days a week, a contractor picks up letters and supplies from the post office and drives 67 miles to the rim of the canyon. The goods are then packed onto a mule that carries it all down eight precipitous miles. 877 Highway 66; (928) 769-2300; uspspostoffices.com
