"On the night of January 15, 1994, Grand Canyon lost two dedicated friends
and the river community lost two stalwart boatmen. Tim and Karen (Byerley)
Kazan were driving home to Page when a motorist struck them in a tragic
collision they would not survive." This memorial to Karen - as one of the
many pioneering river women - stands across from the Marble Canyon
Lodge,with the Echo Cliffs as a dramatic backdrop.
Below is a link to a beautiful bit of writing by river runner Connor Savers for
the publication Grand Canyon River Guides. When you find a moment - you
may find her descriptions of the natural world to be breath taking and inspiring.
There is a photo of Karen Kazan maneuvering her raft through Crystal
Rapids, and a loving description of who she was, and what the world lost.
