Busy as a


A busy beaver has been busy along Fort Ridgely Creek.  Gnawing down trees, big and small, tumbling them down into the water.  A few trees went the wrong way and fell over the hiking trail alongside, but only a few.  A quick bit of chainsaw can take care of that. 

How does a beaver know which way to gnaw, so the tree will fall the right way?  Into the creek to build a dam, to slow the water, to make a pool, to build a lodge, to have a place in spring and summer and fall and winter to live and eat and sleep.  Must be that thing called In-Stinkt.
