Why Rush Through Paradise documents my solo kayak journey down the Grand Canyon of the Colorado in January 2014. Filmed during 27 days in the depths of the Canyon, the film aims to convey the emotional journey I experienced while alone, and reveals the inescapable beauty of the Canyon.
This trip was one of the longest solo trips on record in the Canyon since the Park Service instituted the 25 day Lees Ferry to Diamond Creek trip length requirement. Long nights and a deserted river allowed for ample contemplation on our place in this world, and provided a unique opportunity to explore the intricacies of the Canyon at my leisure.
