Willow River Couple Completes Walk Around Superior

Monday, September 20th, 2010 at 5:44 am

When Mike Link (64) and Kate Crowley (60) of Willow River set out to walk around Lake Superior in April, they didn’t quite know how long their quest would take. Turns out, the couple finished the 1550 mile trek in 4 1/2 months.

Link and Crowley crossed the finish line on Saturday,  Sept. 18 and the Duluth News Tribune reports about 75 well-wishers showed up in a display of support. The couple began their hike back on April 29.

The paper reports that the walk was in celebration of Link’s retirement from Northwoods Audubon Center in Sandstone.
