A couple staying with us recently came back from a scenic ride around Lake Santeetlah highly excited.  As they were taking in the natural beauty thisdevoted worker area has to offer, they noticed a dropped tree in a ditch on the side of the lake.  They pulled over to see a total of three beavers hard at work in the midst of construction of a dam.  The couple remarked that they had seen several beaver dams over the years but had never had the opportunity to watch one being built.  One never knows what is around one of our mountain curves!
