Lodge Cam Update

In order to check the cam that’s pointed at the beaver lodge, we have to go out in the boat and that’s what we did yesterday.P1080915See all the branches out there in the water?  That’s what the beavers will feed on this winter.  I’m sure they’ll keep adding to it, but so far they have a pretty good supply.P1080917We pulled up to the cam and were disappointed to see only 3 sets of pictures had been taken.  One was when Jim first set it and one was from when we just arrived.  I carefully removed the card…sure didn’t want to drop it in the water and checked to see what we got on the other set of pictures.  All we could see were ripples in the water.  So I put the card back in and we decided to wait a few days before we check it again.  We’re thinking this may not work out at all.  We know the beavers have been working on the lodge, but every morning and night, there’s lots of steam rising from the pond.  Most likely the lens gets fogged up and it just can’t work.  But, how do you know if you don’t try?


With most of the leaves down, it’s easy to notice the ones that are left.  Yesterday we walked through an area that was logged this spring.  The poplar trees shot up straight and tall and some of them have leaves as big as a dinner plate.  Just look at the size and colors of these leaves….P1080909

I just love your photos. Gosh maybe in ah couple days there will be some action at the lodge. Hope the fog don't hurt the cam, ya think? Naw. Man those leaves are huge! You could wall paper with those big things! Frame them for sure, wow! Hey you look purty spiffy in those shades!

Wow!! Those are really some big leaves. I hope that you get more action on the beaver dam camera. That should be very interesting.

Wow. those leaves are really huge! And I love that first picture of the front of the boat. Neat looking shot. Sorry to hear the cam didn't do so good this time around though.
