Elena Kirschner

Guide For: Grand Canyon
From the Alsek in Alaska to the raging Colorado through the Grand Canyon, Elena has traveled numerous western rivers during her 22 years spent as a guide for O.A.R.S. Some of the things that stand out about her job include, “spring bloom in the desert, successfully navigating Hermit rapid, living out of doors, sleeping on the Dory and working with good friends.” When she is not on the river, Elena can be found skiing or working in the emergency room as a trauma nurse.
