Tales from the Cripps: Episode 15 : The Grand Canyon with Orin and Rowan Gartner

-

- Advertisment -

In late June through early July Orin and Rowan Gartner made their first descent down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in kayaks. At age 10, Rowan tied Bodie Hilleke’s record for the youngest known kayaking descent down the Grand Canyon. Orwin, at age 14, also made an impressively young descent. The flow for the trip was around 20,000 cfs, considered a high flow for the run.

Join me for a quick interview with the boys a week after they got off their trip to hear about the experience from their perspective.

To read more about the trip, check out this  in the Durango Herald.
