In the early 1900's, a young man by the name of Ellsworth Kolb arrived at the Grand Canyon to seek adventure. He saw beauty that he had never seen before and was joined by his brother, Emery, within a year. They founded a photographic studio at the Bright Angel trailhead. It started out as a cave, then over a couple years was transformed into a two story structure. They filmed their many adventures, including rafting down the Colorado!
