Author writes of and through river’s obstacles

Tale of epic Grand Canyon run is bumpy – and so is sharing it
Kenton Grua relaxes in the Emerald Mile in 1983 before taking the dory on a legendary speed run down the Colorado River.
Although there were no photographers nearby to document it, the famed Crystal Rapid of the Colorado River was even fiercer when Kenton Grua, Rudi Petschek and Steve “Wren” Reynolds navigated it aboard The Emerald Mile during their record-breaking speed run in 1983.
