I haven’t been out in Dogtown much, but I went for a walk there yesterday with a friend. He took a photo of me next to “Peter’s Pulpit”. I wanted to get on top to strike a preachy pose, but there is no easy access to perch on the peak of Peter’s pulpit.We ended up at Whale’s Jaw:
I hope to get back to hike in Dogtown more regularly! It is a very interesting place.

6 thoughts on “Dogtown walk”
By Peter A. Todd
As I stroll along its wooded path
I view with awe at Dog Town’s reflection
Of how all mother natures leaves amass
Its various and beautiful colors blended to perfection
God’s great creatures dashing around
Making ready for a long winters sleep
Birds up and flying southward bound
Those left behind building nests to keep
You can feel the history of Dog Town in the air
As you view each cellar and hear nature’s sounds
We must take heed to treat with great care
Of all Gods great creatures abound
So as the first snow begins to fall
Take your first look at Dog towns open space
Appreciate the winters cleansing in whiteness all
That God has seen fit to grace
Thanks for posting this beautiful poem!
Reblogged this on Perpetual Learner.
We haven’t gone in recent years, but Dogtown was always a great place for blueberry picking.
I have yet to walk the trails of Dogtown. It’s been on my things to do in Gloucester list for quite some time….. also Ravenswood Park….
The first one should be called Elephant Rock!
