Henry Karpinski (of the Long Island Karpinskis) was hitchhiking across the country when he ran out of money at the Grand Canyon. Accustomed to eating daily, he got a job on the South rim and figured he'd stay two weeks, get his first paycheck, and split in the night for California.
Forty years later he decided it was really time to move on and so here he is at Garland's. Henry will be delighting guests each evening as the new evening manager.
A bit of an historian, he became recognized as an expert on the human history of the Grand Canyon and has appeared on the Travel Channel, the Learning Channel, the History Channel, and PBS.
