Now to embed the stick into the dam.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beaver-made ripples.

 

 

October 18th. The Ghost Run is coming!

 

 

A female Belted Kingfisher (Ceryle alcyon). Noisy when they fly.

Seen but not photographed: two deer splashing through the marsh near the old beaver dam.

October 22nd. Sunrise as I drove to the trail.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Full moon.

 

 

Blowing leaves off the trail. Sadly, much of the stone dust surface blows away too - as it does every year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The moon again as clouds begin to obscure it.
