Beaver Hard at Work

This past summer Dan Rice, who has a cabin near Breezy Point on the west side of Long Lake, noticed that a couple of the trees on the point were losing some of the bark near the bottom of their trunks.  With a closer look, he saw that the bark had been chewed off in a perfect circle to girdle the tree.  By the end of the summer both trees had fallen into the lake; one to the north and one to the south.  It will be interesting to see if anyone sees the beaver working out on Breezy Point this fall or early next spring.  Thank you for the pictures, Dan.
