A lousy photo of Walden Pond.

“You must love the crust of the earth on which you dwell more than the sweet crust of any bread or cake; you must be able to extract nutriment out of a sand heap.” HDT

A troubling sign that I found in the woods near an abandoned cabin site. The last line is particularly disturbing. “When I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” Whoever wrote this was obviously worried about zombies.

The self-aware Walden Pond gift shop, perfect place to get your HDT schwag. I especially enjoyed the ironic wall quotes and t-shirts that said, “Simplify.”
