Fall Color at Walden Pond

I hope you don't mind a few more photos, some of which have been Instagrammed (is that a word?).  Jon and I walked the perimeter of Walden Pond on Columbus Day.  It was a beautiful fall day and I took many photos from different points along the trail.  In case you're not familiar with the site, Henry David Thoreau lived in a modest one room cabin at Walden Pond (in historic Concord, Massachusetts) from July 1845 to September 1847.  

 Walden Pond is considered to be the birthplace of the conservation movement and I think you can see why from these photos.  To learn more about Thoreau and Walden Pond, visit the Walden Pond State Reservation website here.  If you're in the area, I highly recommend a visit, especially during fall.  It's a peaceful, but popular park and even a bit crowded when the weather is especially nice.


  1. Beautiful photos, and it looks like an idyllic place. I am sorry to say I have never been, but will put it on my 'must do' list.
    All best,

  2. Oh my gosh, beautiful photos, Deborah. I used to visit Worcester all the time....too bad I never made it to Concord. And I need to start using Instagram've convinced me :)

  3. Beautiful and peaceful! Great pictures! Looks like another place I need to put on my list of places to visit!
