Walden Pond

Walden Pond Professional Review and Guide

"All paddlers in the Northeast should, at some point, make a pilgrimage to Walden Pond. Here we revere Henry David Thoreau, who penned in Walden the reason why many of us seek solitude in nature:
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
