"Great Pond Beaver"


Here's a photo taken on Thanksgiving at the Great Pond State Park in Simsbury, Connecticut of a beaver hut. I didn't see any beavers that day but in past years I used to see them. I like beavers but it is probably not a good idea to pet them. I can remember seeing some beavers swimming under the ice during the winter and for a time the beavers were felling quite a few trees in the woods surrounding this pond. I don't know if the the beavers were inside their hut having Thanksgiving dinner when I walked by or maybe they were watching the parades and football games. I know that they never miss an episode of "Leave It To Beaver".
