January 1st, for me, is simply the day I put up a new calendar. It's rather arbitrary, with other days making more sense to me (solstice, for one). But I decided it was a good day to pay a visit to Walden again, as it was relatively warm and sunny.

As was the case last time I went, a lot of others had the same idea. Parking was free today, and the visitor center was open (yay, bathrooms). I wandered down to the pond after saying hello to Henry and the replica of his cabin.

Most people were walking on the beach, and there was a bunch of college-age kids who started stripping off their clothes and heading toward the water.

They quickly ran back out, squealing all the while.

It's a lovely place, even in winter.

After taking this pic, I dipped my fingers in the water. It was way too cold to dip my toes in.

I'll have to pick a non-holiday, non-weekend day to go back sometime.

Eeeee. I feel my rheumatism coming on just looking at those pictures...

That does look lovely. Maybe 2017 will be the year I read Thoreau.

I recommend taking it in small bites. It's not the kind of thing you sit and read beginning to end. I keep it on my phone, to read when I have to wait somewhere (like the laundromat).

I love clear bright winter days, but we get so few of them. However, we did have one today!

Yay! We do get quite a few, but not many when it's warm enough to go out without bundling up in a million layers. :)
