Charlie and MOQUI


You probably wouldn't be able to guess where Charlie is, but he's at the Grand Canyon. Charlie is at the Moqui Lodge. The lodge was demolished in 2005. This photo was taken in May, 1986. I'm sure Charlie had nothing to do with its demise.

CHECK Charlie


Charlie's standing so this might mean he's on the move again. He could be...checking out.

I'm betting nobody believed I actually have a box of photos of a man standing or sitting.
