According to legend, a man who was in the civilian corps died while putting up a railing at this Grand Canyon spot. I would think someone would have thought to jot down this gentleman’s name, since he died so that others would not, however no real detail has been uncovered at this time to point to who this poor soul might have been. Regardless his poor soul is said to still haunt the spot in the form of a black mist that rises around the railing.
