The Thoreau Experiment



When reporter Ben Montgomery set out to walk everywhere as part of a tribute to Henry David Thoreau's Walking essay published in 1862, he also decided to document his journey is this digital journal that you see below. Along the way, he picked up followers and shared his observations in real time.

On July 29, he published his own essay about what the walk meant to him. You can read that essay here.

Happy ambling.
