Dog lovers will LOVE The Dog Chapel!
Here’s a spot where all dog lovers should make a point to visit! I was introduced to this spot during a photography workshop and just fell in love with it. Dog Mountain is set on 150 acres on a mountain top location in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. The grounds are always open to people and their dogs. This unspoiled haven is covered with hiking trails and dog ponds. Dogs are not just welcome here, they are cherished!
When you visit the Dog Chapel you are totally enveloped with messages of love. It is a very moving experience – sad, certainly, but also uplifting – to see how much everyone cherishes his or her dog. Grieving for a lost dog is one aspect of the Dog Chapel, but equally important is celebrating the joy of living and the bond between dogs and their owners. The creator Stephen Huneck wanted people and dogs to have the most fun they possibly could. To this end, he has put in hiking trails, ponds for dogs to swim in, and an agility course for them to play on. In the winter folks come and snowshoe with their dogs, enjoying the pristine surroundings and the spectacular views! Put it on your bucket list to visit if you are ever in St. Johnsbury, VT!
