Tree fall on Price Lake
What was interesting was the handiwork of little furry creatures over the winter. We found more than a dozen trees toppled over the trail, thanks to the work of beavers that need materials for dams.
The labor invested in topping a tree is quite amazing. I sometimes struggle with carrots or a crisp apple and can't imagine chomping through a tree trunk.
We may exist in a material world, but in some specific area nature remains supreme. I love to think about about the ways in which animals work within their environment to succeed. Makes me wonder what the world would look like, if I had the tenacity to work through the tree trunks in my life.
So when times seem tough, let's make like a beaver and chomp our way to success.
