August 13, 2009 – Emma Hits Walden Pond

We also went to Walden Pond. It was where Henry David Thoreau chose to live for two years of his life.  He chose to live out of society to see what it was like.

Where his cabin used to be. All that’s left is a pile of stones.

A view from the hiking trail from the beach to the cabin. A very worthwhile walk.  It reminded me a lot of the boundary waters in northern Minnesota because of the lake and the types of trees around it.

And of course, you have to go swimming. The water was some of the clearest water I have ever seen.
