Tony Lillios and Kate Howell became the first individuals to complete a two-way, non-wetsuit 12-mile crossing of Crater Lake in Oregon. The duo swam August 13th in 55°F (13°C) water without any support craft due to the local regulations.
They carried a GPS unit which recorded their double crossing route (shown on left).
