About Today’s Photo:
The beaver pond along the Mailbox Trail is once again inhabited and filling up. The large dam on the left side of the photo blew out during Irene’s flooding, sending a wall of water downstream that took out a neighbor’s driveway and inundating a pasture. But the beavers moved back in and have renovated the dam and lodge. It’s a lovely place to hang out!
