Double the Trouble

I sat down beside a bubbling stream near our campsite, dipped my feet into the cool water and wrote Rob a letter. I described to him the beauty of Colorado, the physical challenge of walking 15 to 20 miles each day and the incredible new family I had acquired in the Marchers. I ended the letter by begging him to come out and see it for himself.

A Vow of Silence

The purpose of constantly having someone silent on the march is so we can represent those who have no voice in this issue. It is my turn to carry this torch. Ben just finished his 10 day silence, and in his place I will be silent for a week

America the Beautiful

Let Berenice’s death be a reminder to all of us of those who have been silenced, sickened, and killed by air pollution…

Colorado Springs

While I’m on the march, I want to focus less on the material world and more on the finer things; nature, friendships, music, making a difference in my world, and my personal development.

Faces and Stories

In Fort Garland, Colorado, we had a stay day and camped for two nights across the street from the old fort, which is now a museum.

Pushing it to the Limits

On the walk, we have a few personal vehicles, which are used as “sag wagons” or “blister buses.” They provide support for the marchers throughout the day of walking, either by giving them water or gear.

Two Practice Walks

As I walk across the country in the Great March for Climate Action I will be blogging about my adventures here at The Ithacan and also on my personal blog (http://viridorari.blogspot.com).
