Down in the Kolb Studio we met Emery Kolb's grandson, Emery "Smoky" Lehnert and his wife Ruth. Smoky grew up at the rim with Grand Canyon and the Kolb Studio as his playgrounds. This is their first visit since Emery Kolb died in 1976. Boy, do they have some stories.
Storytelling runs in the family, and Smoky's daughter Jennifer suffers from the affliction as well.
Jennifer's daughter Kerstin, one of Emery Kolb's twin great-great-granddaughters, listens to grandpa spin another one.
Edith spent all afternoon basking in the sun in front of the El Tovar.
Even the new Superintendent, Dave Uberuaga, succumbed to her charms.
