Ely traveler’s 80-mile trek is believed to be a first
Canoe outfitter and guide Jason Zabokrtsky walked into Ely on Friday evening to complete an 80-mile trip that, apparently, no one else has ever made.
Zabokrtsky walked (and swam some) from Atikokan, Ontario, across Quetico Provincial Park and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and then into Ely. He is believed to be the first person to make the trip solo, on foot during the open water season.
