Traveling the South Shore of Lake Superior from Superior to the Tip of the Keweenaw

It was 2010 when Kate and I (Mike Link) walked around Lake Superior and enjoyed a magnificent 145 days of adventure and beauty.  Now the Audubon Center of the North Woods has asked us to lead a series of trips around the lake that combine the beauty, some walking, nature, history and exploration.
