Lila's Dirty Little Secret (the rare white beaver)
Look it's a rare white beaver.
"No boat necessary, I'm an excellent swimmer. "
Caney was looking a bit depressed when we stopped at the first beaver dam on Shingle Shanty Brook. So I decided he needed to swim back to the lake. I'd guess about 3/4 of a mile. He suffered watching us climb and this was the ticket to putting him in a better mood.
After picking Daniel up at the bus station in Albany Friday morning we headed for Lake Lila for some paddling and rock climbing. Another pleasant weekend spent outside during the best part of the year.
The lake of course was disproportionately packed compared to the other paddling areas we passed on the way in. Never will I understand the mass appeal of this lake.
