Long Walkers, a sweet stay at Raccoon Creek State Park, Pennsylvania

Photo by Brenda Norrell

The Longest Walk Northern Route visited Meadowcroft this week, while camped near Pittsburgh, where traces of man exist from 16,000 years ago. Pennsylvania residents, the governor and police extended a warm welcome and assisted the walkers in every way since walkers arrived in the state eight days ago. A special thanks to all of you who brought out food, offered supplies and shared your friendship with us here. Walkers leave beautiful Raccoon Creek State Park today and head east. Walkers will be at a powwow near Farmington, Penn., this weekend. On June 28th, the northern route will hold a prayer vigil for Leonard Peltier, before heading to the DC area on July 8. On July 11, the northern and southern routes walk into Washington. (Please double click on photo to enlarge.)
