The Amazing Kolb Brothers

A Grand Life at the Grand Canyon !

At first glance, Kolb Studio appears to be an old house perched on the rim of the canyon.

However, if you step inside, or see it from the Bright Angel Trail on your hike out of the canyon, you get the sense that it is much more than that.

This is the Victorian home of the Kolb Brothers who created a lasting legacy of adventure, exploration, family love, and amazing Grand Canyon photography that will last as long as the Canyon itself.
