Great Lakes Kayak-er Stops Journey Due To Weather

A Missouri kayaker who’s paddling around all five Great Lakes has stopped her journey because of the winter weather.

Traci Lynn Martin started her journey in March.

She’s paddled more than 3,000 miles around Lake Superior, Huron and Michigan.

Martin posted a video to Facebook saying “it’s not safe” and “it’s only going to get worse.”

A nurse says she’s been covered with ice because temperatures have been below freezing.

Martin thanked everyone for supporting her during what she called “an adventure of a lifetime.”

She is still hopefully and says she wants to try it again in 2019.
