Near Lake Placid, New York. The Mt. Van Hoevenburg hiking trail crosses this small beaver pond before the ascent to the summit of the mountain begins. A quiet and relaxing afternoon at this beaver lake. This photo was taking while standing on the beaver dam which holds back the water that killed all the trees. I waited as I watched the setting sun paint the beautiful pink colors in the sky. Mt. Van Hoevenburg can be see on the left hand side of this photo.
