Wednesday the group was joined by Mark Johnson of the Fellowship of Reconciliation for the first leg of the walk. It was a beautiful day walking along the Hudson and through the Palisades.
At the 6 mile mark the walkers stopped for lunch outside a small cafe where Mark Johnson left to return to FOR. The community was very welcoming, and people continually came up through lunch to offer their thanks, take photos of the banner, take flyers back home.
John rode his bike down to meet the group, and invited us back to the university to visit the earthquake museum on our way out of town.
About 3 miles out from the lunch spot we came to Columbia University, where John showed us seismographs and explained in greater detail the process of documenting earthquakes.
The walk continued on towards the city.
At the 15 mile point the walkers hopped into vans and shuttled forward to the Highbridge community in the Bronx.
