Newton Falls resident Arthur Dunn, who left April 15 on a walk to see two of the locations of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, completed his 460-mile walk nine days ahead of schedule.
Dunn was in the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C., late Wednesday and arrived back in Newton Falls on Thursday.
He said he originally planned to walk about 15 miles per day, but clocked more than 20 miles many times. He said a snow storm in late April shut his trek down for one day.
He visited Shanksville, Pa., where one of the planes crashed on Sept. 11., and then also saw the Pentagon and visited museums in Washington, D.C., that had Sept. 11 memorabilia.
Dunn said he took close to 380 photos and also kept a daily journal recording weather conditions, miles walked and interesting things he saw or did.
He said he received several free meals from people he met along the way.
Arthur Dunn, 74, of Newton Falls, walked from Newton Falls to Washington, D.C., in honor of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. On his way, he visited Shanksville, Pa., where United Flight 93 crashed on Sept. 11. Dunn walked 460 miles in 22 days.
''I saw so many things. While the trip was no walk in the park, it was worth it,'' he said.
Dunn said the most challenging part was getting the cart he took with him up stairs.
In all, the trip took 22 days.
