After two-months of kayaking on Lake Superior, a Duluth man is welcomed home
After 63 days on Lake Superior, Zane Brosowske is back in his homeland. He spent the last two months paddling the circumference of Lake Superior.
Family, friends, past professors and coworkers all were there today to welcome him home.
After finishing his undergraduate degree at UMD, Brosowske says this has always been a dream.
“I’ve been preparing for this for a year now, really trying to hone in on those skills needed for something as enduring as this.” Although, the physical aspect of it was hard, Brosowske says the hardest part of it all was dealing with this years mosquitos.
Brosowske mentioned he wasn’t even sure he could do it because they most he’s ever backpacked was only five days.
However, he did not spend the whole time exploring and enjoying nature. “I set out with a mission to study sustainable resource management around Lake Superior and talked to a lot of people.”
Brosowske sharing the most memorable experiences were with people he met along the way. He says you never know where you’re going to get or who’s going to offer you a meal.
Zane also says he shared his entire journey on Facebook through the Boulder Lake Learning Environmental Center. If you visit their page, you will find photos, videos and maps of where Zane travelled during his expedition.
