Thoreau's Journal: 13-Feb-1859

Winter comes to make walking possible where there was no walking in summer. Not till winter do we take possession of the whole of our territory. I have three great highways raying out from one center, which is near my door. I may walk down the main river or up either of its two branches. Could any avenues be contrived more convenient? With this river I am not compelled to walk in the tracks of horses.

This entry reminds me of a t-shirt I bought years ago at mountain lodge in Montana or North Carolina. On the front: "THOREAU SAUNTERING CLUB" and on the back: "I do not choose to run."
