A view from the summit of Shannon Mt down across the Hidden Valley Scout Camp (most buildings hidden behind trees) to 2 beaver impoundments just beyond. The one in the upper left corner is the larger of the 2, but was abandoned some time ago; now the dam is breached and there is no pond, just a marsh. The one just right of center is a more recent, still active beaver area. Not only is there a family of beaver there, but this is a very active blue heron rookery, with a half-dozen or more herons raising chicks this year. It also served as a nesting site for a pair of osprey - 2 years ago osprey nested here, but last year they were missing - it was good to see them back at the site this year. In the upper left corner you can see a part of Crystal Lake.
