SouthernADKHiker,

That's not exactly the Murphy Vly but it's close according to my map water running into it is from the Vly. The beaver did a pretty good drop of swamping up the area. Have you seen him ? He wasn't scared of me at all but just moved away at a leisurly pace. Not slow enough from me to get a pic though!

Nice beaver pics and that skull is a very nice shot.

I saw this guy yesterday at the north end of T Lake. He was sitting still in the water like this for quite a while, keeping a cautious eye on my dog and me. I got to within 20 feet of him before he did a tail slap and swam away. His house was maybe 15 feet away.

It's unusual to encounter beavers acting so conspicuously in the winter, but yesterday I saw/heard three: one at the foot Stacy Mountain, this guy (or gal as the case may be), and another elsewhere on the north arm of T Lake.

Must be they didn't expect winter to come so early this year, so they're scrambling to boost their food caches?

Here are some shots from the Hoffmeister area. Beautiful day, and outstanding snowshoeing conditions!

Every day should be like this.

From the archives:
  1. Ice Cave Vly, near North Lake, 2004. This was the area I first heard the word "vly" spoken conversationally. I met a hunter there years ago who pointed up the trail and said, "The vly's up there." I ran my fingers through my hair because my brain didn't recognize the word--at first I thought he said something about a fly in my hair.
  2. Mullins Marsh, near the Middle Branch of the Oswegatchie, Aldrich Pond Wild Forest, 2007. I briefly considered this as a campsite, but opted instead to be closer to the river.

Justin,
I think your shots are great without the blue skies. Gives them that Ansel Adams look!

Very cool,
Where abouts on the Desolate Brook were you?
My father and I were there a couple weeks ago, at the pond at the base of Pharaoh Mt.

I set out from where it empties into Mill brook and followed it up for a mile or so. I had skis (no snowshoes) so I had to turn back when I ran into a wall of snow and trees; I plan to go back (with snowshoes) and connect to the Sucker brook horse trail and then on to the very same pond with no name.
