Pretty, don’t you think?

You can see the large beaver lodge as you walk around Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. They sure have been busy this past winter.

On the other side of the lake I saw a tree that the beavers have started to fell…but it’s not quite finished. I was amazed at the size of the tree trunk. It looks pretty big for a beaver to drag away.

Have you see the beaver’s lodge at Lily Lake?

Longs Peak, the highest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, still has quite a bit of snow on it. The view from Lily Lake was so pretty.

The ice has melted on the lake although there is still a bit of snow around the banks of the lake and on the shaded trails.

A great place for a walk with beautiful views!

I saw these three yellow Gaillardia wildflowers at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park last summer. I thought it was so cool because you have one that is just a bud, one that is starting to bloom and one that is in full bloom…all right next to each other.

Pretty, don’t you think?

Busy Beaver At Lily Lake In Rocky Mountain National Park

You can see a beaver’s lodge as you walk along the shore at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. it is made mostly of smaller branches and sticks and goes way under the water.

I was so surprised today when I saw this aspen log in the middle of the trail right near the lodge. It was about 4-5″ diameter which is pretty big for a beaver to drag. It looked like he had gnawed it down across the little pond in the back and then dragged it through the water to his lodge, but he didn’t quite get there. Maybe someone came along? Maybe he got tired?

He sure was a busy beaver!!
