Looking For Adventure
With many paths to chose from everyone scattered, then met up on the other side of the meadow. If you look close you can see heads bobbing in the distance.
This time of year when the temperatures have dropped and the sun sets so early the trails tend to be rather empty of people. Not so for the birds and animals that are all around. Problems with the camera kept me from getting a picture of the beaver lodge on the lake edge along the trail. Signs are posted so it is easy to find if you take a walk around. No sighting of the beaver this day but you could see where it had been working. Many of the trees had wire fencing around the base to protect from the beaver but many were left unprotected. A fair compromise.
Have you ever noticed how entrancing the flow of water can be?
Many ducks swim the waters edge looking for food. We watched what looked like a hawk swoop prey across the canal, too far away to see well. The most fun was just as the sun reached the horizon. Hundreds of geese flew in and landed on the lake, honking loud and clear.
