More from Walden Pond

Day206/Year 2
We spent quite a while here yesterday morning, and I feel this place deserves another day here on the blog. The Fall colors here in SE MA, where I live, have been disappointing to say the least. We did find some decent color out here in Concord. Certainly not a stellar season, but pretty nonetheless.
I liked the way the water was rippling around the stone in this next image. Don't ask me if I placed the leaf on the rock myself, or if I found it sitting there that way. You decide:

We took a wonderful hike around the pond and here is what we saw along the way:

"My purpose in going to Walden Pond was not to live cheaply nor to live dearly there, but to transact some private business with the fewest obstacles;to be hindered from accomplishing which for want of a little common sense, a little enterprise and business talent, appeared not so sad as foolish."
