Those Dam building Beavers
Yesterday, Megan and I cleared a beaver dam that was blocking the outlet of little pond. Too much water, and the bog can get flooded. It really doesn't surprise me, but after canoeing back there this morning, the beavers had not only rebuilt the dam, but they have made it both taller and wider.
The beavers in charge of this dam most likely live in this lodge. Although its been active for several years, every time I visit Little Pond, it seems as if they have piled more mud and sticks onto the mass. It really is huge!
This evening we will head back to Ohio, but we had a wonderful time here in Maine. I recommend this state to anyone thinking about heading north for vacation, you won't be dissapointed.
