The great thing about living on our farm is the nature factor. When I lived in a suburban neighborhood, several years ago, nature was virtually absent. No rampant wildlife, little to no trees, and not a stunning sunset in sight. Now, however, we are enveloped in the trappings of nature everyday.
My son had been telling me about beavers that were on our property and I have to admit that I almost didn't believe him. He told me I needed to see it for myself and I let him lead me on a hike that ended up lasting a couple of hours. He showed me many trees that were on the verge of falling, just as this one is.
Then the real deal....a beaver dam. A serious engineering feat, in my opinion.
