I think beavers are really cool animals and I’m always fascinated by their lodges when I come across them on backpacking and hiking trips in New England.
It’s not uncommon to come across lodges that are enormous mounds of wood in the middle of a beaver pond, perfect protection from predators and the cold in winter.
Other times, the lodges are built on the side of a pond, like this one I came across in the Adirondacks a few years ago. Regardless of where they are located, they are impenetrable piles of mud and sticks, with an artistic flair, I think.
