Welcome to Walden Ridge

We're all in this together - and no one but us is going fix the Gulf Coast. And it's not over by a long shot.
Donate for Hurricane Katrina and aftermath relief. There are plenty of good choices. Here are a few: or pick your own at the Network for Good.

Walden Ridge is the great ridge farthest to the west. She rises strong and proud into the skies and can be seen from Black Oak even over the top of Pine Ridge. 'Away on the top of the mountain', as the old song puts it, there's an old, old rock on top of Walden (not Rocky Top, but close...). A dear friend of mine, who still lives in the city of the Ridges, told me once that if you hike 'way up Walden and find that old rock, you'll see a carving that memorializes a legendary beast that dwells there: The Lomesome Polecat (and that's not a typo). What is lomesome? Only the Polecat knows...


Walden is the gateway, if you want to leave, because to get to the outside, you have to climb Walden ...
