This was a last minute stop, but I'm really glad we did. It was quiet and lovely. Take a stone on your pilgrimage around the lake to leave at the site of Thoreau's cabin. Also, if I went back I might try to swim across it, as I saw several people doing on this coolish fall afternoon. The water is so clear and beautiful. Signs posted all around that swimming is at your own risk. But I think there's something spiritual about swimming across the pond.

My wife and I visited Walden Pond on my birthday. As part of the entire experience of the Walden Pond Preserve, the walk along the pond to the original foundation of Thoreau's cabin is a very reflective and contemplative one, especially if one has read Walden Pond or seen the Museum exhibits. Wonderful!

This is truly worth the short walk to get here. It has been preserved in a beautiful way. One could just imagine him living here and what his life might have been like! Thank you for making this possible.

The Amble is cute but don't neglect the rest of the cemetery. It's a lovely experience. I have seen a lot of people visit just for the "big" draw -- the authors, but the entire cemetery is sooo lovely!

We returned to Thoreau's hut this week and it was a real treat. First, the walk to where his cabin stood was long, but enjoyable. Going back and experiencing the solitude he had amid the beauty of Waldon Pond forces us to put away our electronics and just enjoy nature and its importance to us. If you are in the area, this is a must-experience. If you are an early American history buff, this is a required experience. Although most people go to the pond to swim or sun bathe, hiking to the location of his cabin should be the primary reason to go.
