One of the memorable events of my career involving Bob Chandler was in the summer of 1991. Bob was Superintendent of Grand Canyon National Park. I was the Grand Canyon Lee’s Ferry Ranger below Glen Canyon Dam. One summer day I received a phone call from the Superintendent’s secretary. She said that Superintendent Chandler wanted to visit Lee’s Ferry, that Bob did not want anyone to know he was coming to Lee’s Ferry and wanted to visit a secluded part of the Colorado River. Basically he wanted to have quality time away with his daughter Donna.
Superintendent Lancaster asked that Bob be told that Director Ridenour wanted to talk with him. Also, if Bob showed up at Lee’s Ferry, tell him to wait there as Director Ridenour was on the One Day float trip from Glen Canyon Dam to Lee’s Ferry.
