In Thoreau's time, one of the fads was walking in the moonlight.
A lot of the so-called Transcendentalists would go out on hikes in the Walden woods, or any of the nearby woods that weren't cut down--most were--and hike on nights when there was a full moon, or close to it. In addition to the many Romantic ideals that moonlight and moonlit walks touched upon, they also spoke to the idea of finding new ways to adventure in your backyard. The past few night have been good moon hiking nights.And then, even in the morning, the moon has been there, for early morning moon hikes or walks or runs, or early morning moon-lit coffee, an excellent moon-lit finale with which to begin.
