Throwback Adventure – Cranberry Bog – September 2013

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing.

On September 8, 2013 Shadow, Buster, and I visited the Cranberry Bog in Carlisle, Massachusetts. Sadly Buster has passed away since, but he definitely enjoyed his share of adventures. He was an amazing boy, and will always be missed. The Cranberry Bog is also partially located in Chelmsford. The towns bought the property in 1986. It is now used for conservation and recreation purposes. The Carlisle section of the land includes 40 acres of a working Cranberry Bog. The property has wooded uplands, and wetlands with several ponds. There are trails throughout the property.

I was excited to visit this unique location. Who would think a Cranberry Bog would be a dog-friendly, and an off-leash hot-spot. We enjoyed explored the trails, viewing the Bog, and taking in the colorful landscape. Shadow and Buster enjoyed swimming in the ponds, a great option to cool down on a warm Fall day. We saw several other people and dogs throughout, but found the park to be quiet, and peaceful. One of my favorite photographs of Shadow and Buster came on this day, both posing at this scenic spot. We had a fun time exploring the Cranberry Blog (Rating: 4)
