    Looks like I went through at 0830.

    Hmmm, so I think someone, or a strong gust, toppled them this morning. I think I would have noticed them before I even got at the right angle to see the truck (I was heading south). Or I am becoming really unobservant and forgetful.

I used to live directly across Four Mile Run from this pond and the seepage was causing lots of icing in the winter.
    The county plans to renovate the pond (again) and if the beavers aren't gone by then, they have to be killed - state law doesn't allow relocation. So this is a good thing for your spirit animal. They plan to make the pond deeper so that should be good for future beavers.

    Say hi when you ride by and see me chained to the beaver lodge in protest.

    This is my nightmare. To be using a portapotty and it falls over, rolls down, a hill,
    or gets picked up in a tornado with me in it! [shudders]

    NPS has some more info about the closures in Greenbelt National Park. Looks like the north/south road reopens to cycling July 1 but the loop is closed until later in August. It's still a little unclear to me if the campground reopens July 1 or not. Itching to do a little bike overnighter and looking forward to seeing the new rehabbed camp sites at Greenbelt.

    "Record of Determination for a Temporary Closure of Greenbelt Park Campground and Laurel Picnic Area for Roadway Reconstruction in Greenbelt Park (May 21, 2021) - Greenbelt Park (U.S. National Park Service)" https://www.nps.gov/gree/learn/manag...ay-21-2021.htm
