Italia '07 | Walking
 
   

Walking, said John Muir, is tonic for the soul.

He walked the high Sierras in the 19th century.

The students and teachers from St. Gregory walked the streets of Italy and the fields of Sicily in the early 21st.

Despite the differences in place and time, the group found Muir's theory to be true.

Walking meant tonic for our souls (even though it also sometimes meant blisters for our soles).

The following are a few photos of our walking together.
