The Superior Hiking Trail (SHT) is a 310-mile footpath that follows the rocky ridgeline above Lake Superior from the Wisconsin-Minnesota border to the Canadian border. On Saturday, July 4th, at 8:46 a.m. Crystal began hiking the SHT in honor of George Floyd, a Black man murdered by a Minneapolis police officer. 24 days later Crystal officially became an SHT End 2 Ender and the first known neuromodulator implant recipient to complete a total thru-hike.
