When I moved from Colorado to Massachusetts back in 2006, I had good intentions of exploring the area. Then I got a job, settled into my apartment, made friends, and my goal of getting out and about got shoved to the side for life and routine.
Then in 2011, I discovered we were being moved to London. All of a sudden, all of the places I wanted to see became a priority.
One of them was Walden Pond.
Eight years later, now that I’m back in Massachusetts, I’m trying to be better about reconnecting with the US and the places I liked.
Recently, I returned to Waldon Pond. In 2011, we were there on a rainy day. In 2019, it was hot and sunny. It wasn’t until I checked the dates in preparation for this post that I realized I went in the same month (May) both times. I could have sworn the first time occurred in the fall because my memories revolve around being cold and wet. Memories are funny things, and the older I get, the fuzzier everything gets.
Here are some photos from my most recent excursion.
Here’s a replica of his home.
