Walden Pond is nice place by itself. There is no need to inflate its beauty with legends. Actually the main problem of Walden Pond is limited parking space. Story of Henry David Thoreau who lived there for some years is quite vague as most cultural influential myths. Why did moved into cabin in woods about one and half mile from parents home? Was it tax evasion, prolong camping, conscious care about negative influence humanity on water quality or all of above? It doesn’t mater. The icon of environmentalism creates sense of higher purpose for Walden Pond attendees apart from revitalization on ponds beaches.
