There’s a bike path that runs parallel to the river. While walking along it the other morning…
I noticed a tree had fallen across the path. The downed tree seemed healthy, and I doubted the damage was weather related since, for some strange reason, there had not been much wind in recent days.
Then I looked at the branches.
and small showed evidence of the work of a beaver.
Other nearby trees also appeared notched and cut by large teeth. Some of nature’s engineers have been hard at work.
I’ve seen beavers farther down the river.
Maybe the new generation is working on a real estate development upstream.
