Expert wayfarer Jonathon Stalls is on a mission that is anything but pedestrian. Stalls advocates for civic and personal wellness through walking. From his home base in Denver, Colorado, he organizes community walks through his social enterprise, called Walk2Connect, and lobbies for more pedestrian-friendly urban planning. He calls for a return to the mode of travel for which we are built, challenging those around him to slow down and experience life at a pace of three miles an hour.
I came across Jonathon’s guided walks through Tentiko, a marketplace for unique and authentic experiences in Denver.
