PHOTOPAGE 364

   

   

 

 Late March 2008

I just found the Beaver pond that was suggested by some gnawed trees I saw a few months ago. It's in a previously swampy area across from the towpath and can be reached with some difficulty. Even so - it's not in some isolated woodland area, but close to strip malls.

I don't know how many Beaver are around or have any idea how they arrive in this built up area, but they're more than welcome. They have been called 'Earth's Kidney' for their ability to reclaim toxic land.
