The Beavers Helped

Our family cabin is at this lake. The lake’s water level receded drastically about 25 years ago, which coincided with one of the lake residents shooting the beavers in the area because they thought the rodents were a nuisance.

The beavers are now back, and the water level has risen up the beach about 75 feet.  Also, the beavers cut down these two trees that grew on the beach (because the water level was low), so they helped us clear the beach!
