Thoreau went out in search of water, taking an axe to cut a hole in the foot of snow and foot and a half of ice over the pond. The pond, like the marmots in the hills, hibernates for three months. Looking down into the serene water, he realizes that "heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads." Thoreau finds the natural elements to be heavely as much as sky and stars.
