Beaver dam!

I’m lucky enough to own a piece of land that is in tree growth. The logging road through the property was recently mowed, so Chico and I went to have a look at the work. The property is right across the street from a boat launch.

A few hundred acres of trees nearby and Chico wants to pee on the sign post.

The forester says the pond isn’t deep enough for the beavers to over winter. I don’t know why they want to live on top of the hill; maybe it’s full-up down at lake level. It’s the devil’s own work to get beavers to move on before they are ready, so for now, I guess I’ll just keep an eye on it.
