I went out on Friday to one of my "secret spots" for a 4 or 5 hour paddle. First, I found my camera was not working (not off to a good start). I had also left my flower field guide in the truck, and there were flowers blooming all over the place. it was fantastic! Then my 4 or 5 hour paddle was drastically shortened. I paddled about 200 yards up a small tributary that I can usually paddle up for at least 3 hours with only a few drag overs. I was met by an extremely well constructed beaver dam. Since I was alone, and being very quiet I saw both beavers on the dam. Short trip but still well worth it. I hope to do the same short trip later this week and take a working camera with me. take some pics. Beavers really are amazing animals.

They are very shy though. I came right up on one at Rockwood last year, and it took off.

Hope to see your photo's from the next adventure.
