The Grand Canyon captured Chelsea Taylor's heart in 2005. She began guiding Colorado River whitewater rafting trips in 2008.
Here's her Grand Canyon Whitewater story, in her own words:
"In 2005, I discovered the Grand Canyon as a passenger with my mom on a 13-day row trip, and spent the next three years elbowing my way back into the most majestic ditch in the world.
Since 2008, I have been blessed with the best job a city girl could hope for. I hope to spend the rest of my life learning more about the Canyon, and sharing our little world with people just as excited about it as we are."
