Beaver House

As the weather gets warmer, I start thinking of dusting off my kayak and putting it in the water. I'll likely wait a few weeks until the ice is mostly out of the lakes. Last year, my first kayak trip was special -- I followed a stream to Leipsigeak lake, and on the way discovered a large beaver house. I hope you enjoy the photo of my discovery.

You know, the more I think about it, the more I feel like visiting that area again this year. I think it'll be my first kayak trip, again, for the second year running. Last year I saw three beavers, playing about in the water. It's quite wonderful to see and hear a beaver smack its tail against the water. It's a special experience of the outdoor life.

Good medicine, everyone!
