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 ...
