WALDEN POND

by bberburb

If you have read Henry David Thoreau’s Walden as many times as I have before ever visiting the actual place there is the possibility of the event not living up to what the image your mind has built.

I had a chance to visit in mid-September 2008.  On a Friday evening in the rain and then Saturday just after dawn.  Several hours each time and on Friday I had the entire pond to myself much of the time due to the rain.

The harder it rained the further I climbed under the canopy of the woods. 

It far exceeded my expectations in every way.
