STREAMS

As the melting snow swells the small rivulets into increasingly larger streams, and they make their way into Granby Lake, cool stuff happens.

then another. All the while the waterfall in the background begins to increase in it’s roar. As good of dam builders as Beavers are, they cannot build to withstand the relentless onslaught.

Before long the stream crosses under the hiking trail foot bridge.

The Beavers live nearby in comfort. Here is a look at their house.

Had to turn around today on our way home from Dierks Lake when we were not able to cross the Cossatot River because there was three feet of water going over the bridge.
