About a week ago I posted a picture of a beaver dam I had discovered. I went back to the area and did some more exploring. The picture above shows what I think may be the beaver's lodge (there is probably more than one, so I should say beavers' lodge). I could not see any other structures that were similar in appearance to this one.
Here is another picture of the dam taken from the front. Yes, I was standing in the creek (I had rubber boots on). The arrow points at the lodge in the picture above.
You may be able to tell from the picture that the dam is not straight, but curved. I had a measuring tape with me and estimated the length of the dam as 18 m. I measured 2 sections, 7 and 6 m long, and estimated the length of the last section as 5 m (water along the 5-m section was too deep for my boots).
I was also able to take a closer look at how the dam was constructed. I will save that information for another post.
