Several months after writing about an ambitious beaver in the Don Valley, I finally got around to making a close-up visit to his meal at the forks of the Don. The trunk of this tree is about 70 cm (28 inches) in diameter and the Beav has eaten through about a third of it. The exposed band that you see here is about 45 cm (18 inches) tall. He’s eaten a lot of tree, but still has quite a bit to go before he can start the serious work of damming up the West Don. Good luck!

In one of the ravines following Highland creek, south of Lawrence, at about McCowan there are carved tree trunks like this, done by Beavers, that somebody has painted and carved a bit more. I should go for a ride and find them.
That would be an interesting sight. I’ve only started riding around Highland Creek this year and haven’t seen anything quite like that yet.
