At mid-day on June 1, 2013 , Ajahn Ñāniko and Tan Thitābho set off on foot from Abhayagiri to walk north to the Pacific Hermitage in White Salmon, Washington. They are engaged in a traditional walking pilgrimage, commonly known as a tudong. On Sat., June 8, Doug Sherman caught up with them in Eureka, CA and provided a few photos of them as the go along in their journey. The photos are available in the photo gallery below.
Four days later the monastery received a brief message from Ajahn Ñāniko along with two more photos. Ajahn Ñāniko said, “We continue to have one amazing experience after another. At this point we are humbled by the support and generosity we have received from others.” As of the afternoon of June 12, the two travelers were in Trinidad, CA. They might end up getting a ride to Redwood National Park, south of Klamath and then continue walking from there.
