The beavers were here long before we were.

I saw one while entering Avalanche Pass, a few years ago. Like yours, it didn't seem alarmed at all, but stared curiously at me and another couple who went by. I think they're not seen more...

I carry the Hornbeck over one shoulder. I use the bailing sponge as a shoulder pad. I do a double carry, since I'm prone to foot problems otherwise. On day trips, often just the canoe one time & the...
