In February, Nate Damm stepped out in Lewes, Delaware and started his walk across America. On October 15, he reached his destination: San Francisco, California.
I did my best to approach the trip without expectations, to just walk and see what happened if I kept an open mind. Since getting home about a week ago and having some time to reflect, I’ve realized that whatever expectations I didn’t shake were greatly exceeded by how much I enjoyed the trip. It changed everything for me… Here are a few big realizations about America that I got out this trek…
- People are good.
- Everyone has a story.
- America is full of beauty.
It may not take a walk across America to find those things, but Nate’s story serves as a good reminder to keep exploring, listening and taking in the beauty of whatever place it is that you call home.
