Key West, FL - It took them 14 months, but two California women walked more than 4,000 miles across the country.

In May, Lyn Hanush, Joni Balog and their mascot Cassie, dressed in red, white and blue, walked through Lee County.

Their Great American Journey started in Washington State in May of 2003 and ended on Friday in Key West, Florida, the southern most point of the continental United States.

Their motive, they felt like America needed a prayer after 9/11. In each city they passed through, they left a memorial stone and a prayer.

The ladies will use their journals and pictures to write a book about their adventures.
