Turkey Tracks: Beaver Dam

Turkey Tracks:  April 2, 2013

Beaver Dam

I’ve been fascinated with the beaver dam at the foot of Howe Hill, where we live.

Below our house is a wetland that is fed by the stream that runs just beyond the wood line that flanks our house.  Our stream feeds into a stream that runs through culverts under the road intersection below our house where Howe Hill Road meets Molyneaux Road.

Across Molyneaux Road is another wet land that feeds into the larger stream that runs all along Molyneaux Road and gets fed from yet another stream a bit further along that comes down from the higher elevations up Howe Hill.

Anyway, there has been a beaver dam all winter controlling the wetland stream across Molyneaux Road.  Now, though, with the spring melt-off, there is a little waterfall over the dam.

I stopped today to take a video so you can hear the rushing sound of the water–a familiar sound these days as water is pouring off all the mountains.
