Echoes from the Canyon; Grand Canyon History awakens

GRAND CANYON, Ariz. — The third season of the living history event, “Echoes from the Canyon”, will be held Saturday, July 26 at 8:30 p.m., and again on Aug. 9 and Aug. 30 at 8 p.m. at McKee Amphitheater located at the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.

Visitors can watch historical figures from Grand Canyon’s past come to life with stories about their families, adventures, discoveries and efforts to survive in this remote location.

American Indian tribes inhabited the landscape in and around Grand Canyon for thousands of years before the first explorers arrived 145 years ago. After the first explorers saw the majesty of the canyon, word spread, and people have been coming to see it for themselves ever since.

Some of those first explorers stayed to mine the canyon and reap its rewards, while others documented its beauty. Entrepreneurs soon became aware that it was easier to mine the pockets of tourists than the canyon, and soon, a few realized that even this rugged environment needed protecting from mankind.

Join us as park rangers don costumes and become nine influential characters from Grand Canyon’s past.

“It has been great fun putting on this production for the public. The rangers work hard to bring a little bit of fun into learning the canyon’s history,” Erin Whittaker, the show’s director, said. “We hope you can attend one of these special nights and hear their stories.”

For additional information about the program can be found on the National Parks Service website.
