A cold, wet, unsuccessful fishing opener on international waters. Notice the beaver bench that Tom built last fall? Beavers had felled this large birch along the bank, limbed and topped it and took that wood, but the trunk of the tree was too large from them. So, Tom built a great little bench for us on the river! (Notice how high the water is right now!) Also, see the stripped bark in the sapling behind the bench? That's a scrape from a moose last fall when he was trying to get the itchy velvet off his antlers.
