High Waters

With all the rain we've had lately Maxwell Lake is filled to overflow levels. This means water is going out both ends of the lake. It flows east towards the Robb Rod and west over the beaver dam and down Happy Creek. The beavers have their dam fully repaired and the water level is where they like it. Unfortunately, that level floods the gravel trail at the west end of the lake to a depth of several centimetres. Just enough to get wet if you have low shoes. A little more gravel to raise the trail is once again in order. I think it settles a bit year over year and needs to be replenished for that reason.

These boys have figured out how to get across the flooded area without getting wet. In fact they were having a lot of fun!
