National Geographic published an article today about our very own Tom Irvine (NPLSF Chairman), along with National Geographic photographer, and friend of the NPLSF, David Guttenfelder's mission to circumnavigate every one of the Apostle Islands by kayak.


From the article:

To commemorate the National Lakeshore’s 50th anniversary in 2020, Tom Irvine, along with National Geographic photographer David Guttenfelder, a native Midwesterner and kayaker, and Neil Howk, the park’s former assistant head of interpretation, had an ambitious mission to circumnavigate every island by kayak last summer and fall.


It turned out, however, that “Lake Superior and Mother Nature had other plans,” Irvine says.


You'll have to read the article for the rest of the story, and the photographs are amazing!
