The Beaver Dam in Snow
Last month I wrote a post about the beaver dam across the road from Hawksbill Cabin, since it had come into view after the leaves fell. When-ever there is snow on the ground up there, we have a good view of it from the yard - we can easily see how big it is...how it really fills up the hollow. It actually covers an acre or two, between Beaver Run itself and a small tributary that merges in from the right side.
Then on Sunday morning, as Tessie and I were taking our little walk around the property and up the road, I happened to look out and see the beaver out and about, making his rounds in the pond. The main portion of the stream goes off to the left in this photo, and back in there is where the beavers typically build their lodge.
Here's a link to a Wikipedia article about beaver dams, should you wish to read more about them.
