Twenty one people came out to hike the public trails at Miquelon Provincial Park. With reduced traffic on the trail and the trees bare, it was easy to spot wildlife and to see their work.
Beavers took down these trees, creating an unexpected challenge for the hikers. No doubt, these trees would be dragged away by the beavers over the next few days.
The muskrat below seemed nonchalant. The other photo is a tree trunk with its bark chewed off by a porcupine.
After the hike, the hikers gathered for refreshments at the Old Station Meadery in New Sarepta.
Thanks to Irene for scouting and leading the hike, to the people who maintain the trails at the park, and to Mary and Stella for the photos. You can find more photos on Flickr.
