Snacks from heaven

Upon returning from overseas adventures, I set out to see how the Jenny Lake beavers were faring—Dew and her small kit Charlie, and Dew's mate, Ilex. When I neared the pond, I found Charlie's tracks wandering through the woods and meadows downstream from the pond. I had been worried that this little beaver would need some help making it through the winter, and this activity may have indicated that he was hungry.

The next day, I returned to the lodge with hand drills, and inserted a pipe through the vent of the lodge. I now deliver nourishing snacks right into the beavers' livingroom.
