Tuesday we just took it easy and rested up from all our site seeing. Boston was a very interesting city. Definitely would like to go back as like DC, they is still much we didn't get to see. Wednesday, we were back on the road again and headed to Moose River Campground in St. Johnsbury, Vermont.

Couple of pictures above taken on our drive to Vermont. Fall colors are beautiful. Actually it turned out that we missed peak season of the colors in Vermont as some trees at already lost their leaves but still very pretty. We arrived at our campground which is right on a scenic river. We found out later that recent rains were the reason for as much water as they have now. It was dry several months ago.
After we got set up at our site which backed right up to the river, we went for a drive. I had read about a Dog Chapel and we had to stop there. It was an idea that came to an artist named Stephan Huneck after he had a serious illness and almost died. He was walking his three dogs and came up with the idea to create a chape to celebrate the special bond between people and their dogs. He built it on Dog Mountain where Huneck and his wife and dogs lived on their farm in St. Johnsbury. Both dogs and humans are invited to experience it. The chapel is styled on a small village church and includes a steeple toped with a Lab with wings. There is also a shop with dog items including furniture. The chapel was very emotional to us as Joe and I still miss our little Soleil so much. Kristi and Brock are also dog people who lost their lab in the last few years though they now have their little rascals, Oliver and Charlie.

The inside of the Chapel with notes all over the walls that people wrote notes to their pets


        We then went to the Maple Grove Museum and Maple Grove Farms to see how Maple sugar is made. We bought some maple related items such as maple and fig marinade.

 That night we watched what was the Ducks first home game of the season. As we are in eastern standard time, the hockey game didn't start until 10:00 but it was exciting with all our top line making their first goals of the season. After 3 losing games on the road, it was great to see them do well at home.
