hidden gem just outside boston: walden pond

we had a wonderful day yesterday at walden pond just outside boston. trees, water, sun. thoreau.

it’s a glorious place.

a few photos are below.

my only suggestion is for the town of concord to relocate the parking lot a mile away and have a shuttle bus bring visitors to the pond. it could even generate more revenue for concord and would calm the place down.

have you ever swam at walden pond or read the work of henry david thoreau?

if so, please leave a reply below.
