They added so much more flavor to the experience!
I'm not sure what ever happened of Glenn. At one time they worked at tribal store at Reservation Lake on the east side of the rez. Then they had the Salt River Canyon store for quite awhile. One day I went down there and he and his wife Arlene were gone and someone else was there. He deeply conservative and religious guy and did not seem to like carefree guide types. For the most part he and Arlene were pleasant to visit with and I often stopped to chat with them on my way through the canyon. You just knew there were third rail topics with them.
The store is now closed and been repeatedly vandalized. It's shame because it once was cool to get beer there and hang in the canyon. There also used to be a nice lodge/store set up on the San Carlos side at Seneca Lake. Salt River Rafting was based out of there and fixed the place up. It's been abandoned and vandalized since. Such is capitalism on the reservation.
