Walk of a Lifetime

by Justin Reis

The Associated Press reports a Minnesota couple waling around Lake Superior. The 1,550-mile trek lasted 4 ½ months and they only encountered 4 others during the mission.

Mike Link, 64, and his wife Kate Crowley, 60, decided on the walk to commemorate Link's retirement. They want to draw attention to his one-time employer Northwoods Audubon Center to highlight fresh water resources, the Star Tribune reported.

Minnesota Public Radio reported a group of 75 welcomed the two home Saturday afternoon. They told MPR, during the 150-day hike just one thing stood out. "The lake makes the decisions."

They two plan to write a book on their experience.
