As a Trail Foreman, 48 year old Rees B. Griffiths was working on building the South Kaibab Trail from the Colorado River to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. He met his unfortunate end in an area he loved so dearly, when a gigantic boulder that was loosened from a blast excavation he was inspecting. His final resting place is on the north side of the Colorado River a few feet off the South Kaibab Trail, approximately 1,000 feet west of the Kaibab suspension bridge.

Rees B. Griffiths was born October 10, 1873 and died February 6, 1922 at the age of 48 years, 4 months.
