The beaver

Monday, October 25, 2010

Another couple of days and the dam is even higher. Water is backing up again, though the dam is not as tall as the previous high point. Given the dam breaking events of the last couple of weekends, I wondered it I would return this Monday to a free-flowing stream.

But Boomer is making good progress. I notice a little different approach to the dam - it's more like a concrete dam in its curved shape pointing upstream. Maybe Boomer is refining his design.

Again he's adding brush to the side between the road and the dam because the heavy rain this weekend created a lot more flow. And it's nice that the weeds beside the creek are falling back and we get a better view of the dam.

The dam is taking shape nicely.
