These two pictures show the approximate location of the two climbers (the spot marked XX). The spot marked with the B is the beehive rock formation located by the present day visitor’s center. This is the present site of Glen Canyon Dam and bridge. Both of these photos were imbedded in a Word document that someone (Brian Keisling?) sent to me a number of years ago and the document was ascribed to Greg Woodard. I don’t know who took the actual photos. These are dated 1955.

The picture below provides a good look at the river at the future site of Glen Canyon Dam and Bridge. The spot marked XX is the approximate location of the two climbers in my previous post. This shot also provides a good look at the beehive mountain (I hesitate calling it a mountain, but I can’t think of a better word). You can see the beehive cave plainly visible on the left of the picture. I probably climbed up to that cave dozens of times growing up there.
