The Beaver Pond

I took Lily for a walk today down to a branch of Pithole Creek. It is the closest creek to my cabin, maybe 15 or 20 minute walk, but I have never been to this spot before. When we reached the creek I was surprised how large it was. I’ll be going back to go fishing. We worked our way downstream and it suddenly got wider. Then much wider.

It was a beaver pond.

This huge tree was a favorite target of the beavers.

Chewed tree with dam in back

The dam looks pretty old, but solid. And no freshly chewed trees seems to indicate the beavers are gone.
