Friends and family will gather in the afternoon of Saturday, Oct. 12, in Professor Valley to honor the memory of Chris Phelps, who died Jan. 19, 2013, at age 52, in San Francisco of colon cancer. The celebration is open to all and will include a pot luck outdoor dinner.

Chris worked at Canyonlands Field Institute for many years, starting out as an intern in 1993 and returning for 10 seasons. He shared his knowledge and love of canyon country, his guitar playing and beautiful smile with over a thousand school children, many Elderhostelers and CFI staff and Moab friends.
