Glen Canyon NRA has developed the Graffiti Removal and Intervention Team (GRIT) program in order to remove non-historical graffiti from rock faces and sandstone walls, and from shoreline areas within the park. Graffiti is removed using water and wire brushes.
McGinn-Axelsen Scholarship Fund
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. A Scholarship fund to put young people through ranger school has been established.
Did You Know?
In the summertime, temperatures at Rainbow Bridge can get well over 100, and there is no shade on the trail from the dock to the observation area. Make sure you have plenty of water, sunscreen, and a hat so you can avoid becoming a crispy critter!
