Tania Millen

Tania Millen was born in Ottawa but her first encounter with moving water was canoeing down the Red River in Winnipeg with her parents in 1974. She was four years old. A year later she moved with her family to West Vancouver but spent her summers sailing, canoeing, beach combing and helping to build a cabin on 28 acres of wilderness at the south end of Texada Island. She started riding horses at age 10 and has since gone on to compete at the national level as well as working with horses in Alberta, Ontario, England and Australia. She has participated in many outdoor sports including paragliding, rock and ice climbing, ski touring, hiking, mountain biking and has competed provincially as a body builder. Her first whitewater experiences coincided with her move to Terrace in 1992 where she now lives, working as an environmental consultant. She has canoed and kayaked several of the runs described in this book and has visited the put-ins and take-outs for most of them. Her favourite paddle is the scenic Terrace to Exstew River run on the Lower Skeena.
