Loren crossing beaver dam

Loren crossing beaver dam

West Cornwall, Connecticut. Loren and I snowshoed up to the Pine Swamp beaver pond a few days ago. It was extremely cold (about 12F) but there was enough snow and while it was post-holed in places it was snowshoeable with our rather aggressive MSR mountaineering snowshoes.

This is a small dam downstream of the main pond.

Not a lot of ice showing through the recent snow so few pictures and it was cold enough so I didn’t want to expose my hands for very long, but it was great to be there as it always is and we had a blast.

Always a good idea to do something like this the day before you know you’ll be sitting on your ass on a cross country flight.
