Walden Pond Walk

Friday, May 06, 2022 10:27 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

On a cloudy 65 degree day thirty members of the walking/ hiking group split into two groups and walked around Walden Pond. 

One group walked 1.7 miles around the pond while the other walked a mile further to visit the Hayward Meadows section. 

Both groups visited the Thoreau house site part way around; but then the Meadows group went to the marsh area where we saw beaver lodges and turtles. There were a number of trees that had been worked on by the beavers recently. This group also climbed up to the top of Emersons Cliff where we took a picture.  

After returning to the visitors building we watched a very informative documentary produced by Ken Burns on Henry Thoreau. Lunch was on the deck outside.
