Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

The pictures are good enough for me. I'd be afraid that the day I stepped inside is when it finally decides to obey the laws of gravity.

Very informative with great photos. I would have been afraid of slipping in all that snow and going over the edge.
Are the furnishings original or ones of the era purchased for the residence?

Gaelyn: Thanks so much for the fun tour of the canyon studio. What a view. That looked like a tough walk up there.

Barb said...

So interesting,,Gaelyn. I was in the studio in spring a couple years ago. Oh what a difference the snow makes.

Thank you for that interesting piece of history. I love this country for its entrepreneurial spirit seen in these 2 brothers!

I just love the picture of the one hanging by the seat of his pants! That's a real photo junkie.

Whoa! How amazing is that snow! I was there in November without snow but 2 years ago there was some snow but, nothing like this! I love seeing this! Thank you for getting there the hard way!

I can't believe all that snow! Kolb Studio Residence looks like a fascinating place to tour. I like the auditorium and the veranda.

Those early pioneers amaze me. I just cannot believe the things they did. Wonderful pictures. Thanks as always.

Wow, the Canyon really looks so great with all that snow and fog.. I've never been there in the winter but may have to give it a try:) Great pics and story... thanks.

You keep giving me more reasons to visit the south rim. I am going to have to talk JIm into going when we go to Flagstaff next time.

Hey, great information.
And that is quite a studio--gift shop--living quarters--etc.

Ellsworth and Emery were quite the adventurers. Thank goodness. Supers pictures.

One never thinks of snow in the Canyon---but we never see winter pictures. Thanks, MB

What a wonderful story. It just goes to show how a chance thing can change a life or lives sometimes. Fate deals the hands it should. This is a fantastic place to have a studio.

Great post Gaelyn! The picture from the Kolb studio and residence are wonderful. It is really on the edge there. I know you leave soon for your trip to Africa, I hope you have a wonderful and safe trip. Can not wait to see some photos from there.
