I am not sure what it is about beavers, but every time I came across their handy work I am amazed. On Sunday, after enjoying brunch at my parents place, we went for a walk in the woods, the same woods I used to play in as a child. My dad was eager to show Reece the work of the beavers. It was fascinating to see these trees, to look at the beaver tracks, and to see dams that have been removed by the city, only to be built up again.
I can only imagine the strength of their teeth, the determination required to gnaw away on the trees until they fall, and then the work required to build the dam. They are very persistent creatures, and pretty darn resilient. We enjoyed our time exploring this area where they are trying to build a new dam, and hoped one might just pop up to say hello, but, no luck...maybe next time.
