Walking Across America
In this Nov. 27, 2013 picture, Benjamin Lee, front, walks along a highway shoulder in front of his brother, Jonathan, in Queen Anne's County, Md., as part of his walk across America. For as long as he can remember, Lee has dreamed of visiting every country on the planet. With nearly 40 stamps in his passport by age 24, he was well on his way. After graduating from college in Australia in 2012, he wanted one more grand adventure before pursuing a career: a walk across America. Covering 3,432 miles through 14 states, he raised funds for Oxfam America along the way. His brother surprised him by flying from Australia to join him for the last 100 miles of the walk.
