Holden Ringer with his walking carriage, nicknamed"Smiley," sits on the ledge of the Capitol Reflecting Pool on March 10.

His on-foot odyssey began 367 days ago when he departed from the craggy shores of Second Beach in La Push, Washington, and headed east, documenting his journey via his Instagram and website. After all, cars were the most dangerous and scariest thing he encountered on the walk, says Ringer, who is dumbfounded by the number of drivers he’s seen distracted by their phones. He estimates that he spent about 80 percent of his walk alongside country roads and highways, during which he wore a neon green vest and avoided walking at night.

Holden Ringer sits on the ledge of the Capitol Reflecting Pool and enjoys a can of sliced peaches, a favorite snack of his during his walk from Washington state to Washington, DC.
