On October 14, 2010, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Celebrated the lives of two Park Rangers who lost their lives in a private airplane crash. Brent McGinn, Chief Ranger, and Laurie Axelsen, Dangling Rope District Ranger, were good people and great rangers. During our reception, we displayed a slideshow of pictures of our dear friends. Here is that slideshow for anyone who wants a copy. Note: this is a large file. It will take a while to download.
