New MSF Documented Swim - Karl Kingery - Yellowstone Lake, Wyoming
A couple months ago @Karl_Kingery quietly undertook a very adventurous (and as far as we know, unprecedented) swim across the length of Yellowstone Lake, Wyoming. It is one of the jewels of Yellowstone National Park, itself one of the jewels of the U.S. National Park system.
This was a 20.0 statute mile swim at over 7,700 feet (2,350m) elevation in brisk freshwater that typically maxes out at 60 degrees F in summer.
Karl and his observer did a wonderful job documenting the swim. I highly recommend reading Karl's narrative report, which provides a fascinating window into the thought and attention to detail that went into planning the swim.
Well done, Karl and team!
