National Park Service trail crew member Eric Gray rides in a string of mules loaded with material for a federal stimulus-funded trail project on June 9, 2009 in Grand Canyon, Arizona. The NPS Tuesday launched its largest trail reconstruction project in the Grand Canyon since the 1960's, using federal stimulus funds given by Congress. The Grand Canyon park received $10.8 million in the stimulus and began using it Tuesday to rehabilitate the scenic South Kaibab Trail. As part of the project, 28 trail crew employees are avoiding furlough due to the fresh funds. National parks around the country are using the money to fund deferred maintenance as well as begin fresh development projects. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images) * Local Caption * Eric Gray
