We drove through some pretty muddy and rutted up roadways on his quest of the beaver ~ 90 miles of it each day. If the roads weren't muddy ... they were flooded ...
Mother nature didn't disappoint. Every day I saw something that I wouldn't have seen had I just stayed home and let Dear Hubby go alone.
I thought this was kinda funny ~ It's a real estate sign ... pointing down the holes of a badger den.
Each day we walked past this rock too ... that I would LOVE to have in my flower garden ...
I just love the looks of it. I even posted about this same rock last year...lol. It has such character .. grooves carved out of it from flooded waters over the centuries. Too bad it's too big and too far down the creek to negotiate into the back of the pick up truck ... or I'd be snagging that little bugger :)
I did find this little chunk of granite to bring home and tuck into my flower bed somewhere:
He eradicated about 50 of those troublesome beaver this spring trapping season. Not a glamorous job ~ but one that is needs to be done.
flying ducks and geese:
ruffed grouse ... talk about good camo coverage ~
and this trip out ... even a little porcupine ~
I hope you enjoyed the back roads adventure and our little detour of spring beaver trapping.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
