  1. The beaver's construction looks almost like an artistic rendering of the mountain in the background. I like the human perspective on this as well.

    Spacious 4BR lodge with running water. Inquire within.

    Great stuff. I guess I didn't realize how BIG those things could get!

  6. I had no idea those dams could be so large. Ambitious lot, weren't they?

  8. That's a beautiful shot. I like beavers although I know people who complain about some of the ramifications of their engineering feats around local ponds. I figure the beavers were there before the subdivisions so the beavers should have squatters rights.

  14. Perhaps it's all done out in 'last year's sticks'...can't be outdone by the beaver's upstream. ;)

  22. Hi Janie, I drove up to Evanston last weekend....a storm went through the ares and laid down several inches of wet snow...which melted quickly. It was a nice trip though...spring is definitely coming to the "high country"..Thanks for checking my blog!

  38. We have a lot of beaver lodges around here and I have never seen one that big. It must be an apartment building for a few families!

  39. After building that, they abandoned it? They must have found some better trees somewhere?
