|The dam. 19 Feb 2014.|
You can see in the second photograph that the middle section of the dam has breached.
I'll keep an eye out to see how long it takes to repair the damage.

|A field of stumps regenerating.|
On the 19th, I happened to walk around the old dam site from 2011. That particular dam has been washed out and abandoned some time ago. I was on the right bank of the run, where many trees had been cut down and presumably killed by the beavers.
As you can see in these two photographs, most of the trees chose not to die, but rather to regenerate. You can find an interesting article about the process here: http://www.adirondackalmanack.com/2013/06/adirondack-forestry-stump-sprouting.html.
Meanwhile, a couple videos of the ubiquitous fox and also a raccoon. Hope you enjoy them.
