Photography and travel are my two passions. This blog will feature photos from my travels and little anecdotes about my experiences and discoveries.

A quick weekend trip to the east coast back in the late 90's gave me an opportunity to see some of our eastern most states. The friend I traveled with was a huge fan of Henry David Thoreau and she put Walden Pond on her list of places to visit. We calculated our route so we would pass through Concord Massachusetts so we could make a stop at the pond. We somehow missed the cabin but, we could revel in Thoreau's descriptions of the pond as we walked along the shore.
We didn't see as many fall colors on this trip as we wanted but, walking around the pond gave us an opportunity to see plenty of them on the ground around the area.

You saw enough of the fall colors to convey the atmosphere. A lovely setting.

Beautiful photos, Sharon. I've never seen the pond other than in photos...maybe I'll go on a sojourn like you did. Love the rich colors in the 2nd shot!
A peaceful spot. I should go there myself someday. My flatmate's spending the Christmas holidays in the area.
I've heard it's a great disappointment. It looks like a swimming pond to me.
It looks like Catalyst is right though I came upon a book a few years ago with pictures of the revisited places where David Thoreau stayed and it was like the original book's description.
