SHUNESBURG MAIL DROP
The Mail Drop is a location on the bluff above
It was where mail was brought to Shunesburg from Kanab.
Originally, the Wiggle Trail was used by the mail carrier to go from the Mail Drop area down to Shunesburg where the settlers would meet him. Because that trail so dangerous for the mail carrier, they built a cable system that the mail carrier used to lower the mail over the cliff at the head of Shunescreek to the settlers.
