On April 29 2010, Kate Crowley & Mike Link, veteran naturalists, set off via foot & kayak to circumnavigate Lake Superior.
145 days later they'd gone full circle.
It was 1555 miles. (2503 km)
That's quite a walk.
They took video, and collected valuable data on water quality, invasive species, ecology, geography, and human impacts all along their hike. So it was a scientific venture as well as a personal adventure.

Their trek struck a chord with me because my family traveled to see Split Rock lighthouse, one of their landmarks, when I was a child. The shore was rocky, the lake was clear, cold & endless.
And I was chilly after only a few minutes.
Can't imagine how bone-cold you'd be after 5 months.
They saw these moose tracks along the shore...
...and maybe it went in circles around them but
I bet it didn't go as far as they did. :)
