About this Event

You will learn about how the SANTA FE RAILWAY and the FRED HARVEY COMPANY were the first to offer more elegant train service and hotel accommodations at the Grand Canyon. See the gorgeous EL TOVAR LODGE, the premier lodging at the Grand Canyon, and find out which famous politicians and celebrities have stayed here. Hear about Native American history including the 1905 HOPI HOUSE which still stands and is now home to a very exclusive curio shop. Another famous hotel that we’ll see is the BRIGHT ANGEL LODGE, built of local logs and stone in 1935 and designed by famous architect MARY JANE COLTER. The lodge also has a fascinating collection of Fred Harvey and Harvey Girls memorabilia in their special MUSEUM ROOM as well as an authentic STONE FIREPLACE made of stones collected from the canyon. Learn about the KOLB BROTHERS who were the first to travel down the Colorado River to film the Grand Canyon with a movie projector, and later set up a photography studio which still stands here. Perhaps we will get lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the majestic CALIFORNIA CONDOR soaring over the canyon. Hiking and mule riding opportunities abound at the SOUTH RIM on the famous BRIGHT ANGEL TRAIL with options to stay on the floor of the canyon at the PHANTOM RANCH. You will find out about all these things and MORE, as we walk along the SOUTH RIM of the Grand Canyon at Sunset! Please mark you calendar and plant to join me for this FREE LIVE STREAMING VIRTUAL TOUR!
