Walden Pond as seen from space...

Thoreau Reader:  Home - Walden - Thoreau's Walden survey

Looking at Walden Pond from high above the clouds, its secret is revealed: Walden looks like a pig! The snout and one leg touch the railroad, the tail and hind legs are by Walden Street, and the ear is Thoreau Cove. You can see parking lots across the street, and the small beach at the eastern end of the pond. The dark spot near the ear is Wyman Meadow, which sometimes fills with water.
