From earlier this fall during our canoe ride up the Madagascal stream near Burlington, Maine. The beavers selected this wide spot to construct their largest dam. There are several narrower sections within a mile or so. It remains a mystery to us why this spot was selected.
A typical late fall site on the Kennebec River in Augusta, Maine. The gulls congregate here where the tidal affects from the Gulf Of Maine terminate and water levels are more stable.
The pace of life proceeds in the back woods. Despite an unusually dry summer, the no-name pond managed to retain water levels that were not unusual.
