I’ve lived in the log cabin for eleven years, and last night I added a new animal to the list of critters who share my property. On Sunday evening, I was on the nature trail when I saw a mountain beaver! Anne was with me, and so was our friend, Cheryl. None of us knew what the animal was but we got a close, long look at him, and as soon as we got back to the house, I began searching on line. Eventually I found a photo of a mountain beaver, and there is no doubt that this is what we saw on the trail. It is exciting to discover yet another creature who has made my small sanctuary his home.
