Stephen Brede

Over six summers, Stephen Brede solo-canoed around the five Great Lakes. He took time to share his adventures with the FoBR in June. In a Kruger canoe named for the designer and builder who paddled 100,000 miles through the Americas and the Great Lakes, Steve paddled all the Great Lakes beginning with Lake Huron in 2009 (three months) followed by Lake Michigan 2010, Lake Ontario 2012, Lake Erie 2013, Lake Superior south shore 2014 and north shore 2015. His story and beautiful photographs were featured in Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine, June 2016.
