This is Cindell Dale running Hermit Rapid. She's one of the remarkable women who decades ago was determined to guide and helped change the face of commercial whitewater rafting.
But women haven’t always had a place behind the oars or paddle. Cindell, or “Dellie” as she is known on the river, remembers years of #GrandCanyon trips as a cook where she was only allowed to row if it was flat water, windy, or a crew member was sick or injured. Women had just started rowing in the Grand Canyon, and were still establishing themselves as talented commercial guides.
Today, you'll still find her in the canyon, rowing for OARS Grand Canyon Dories alongside the next generation of fierce #outdoorwomen.
