Lake Agnes Beaver House
Most of the inland lakes along the North Shore are now covered with ice. Many do not have sufficient ice for safe travel but Lake Agnes which is located four miles up the Caribou Trail froze earlier than most. I hiked into this remote lake with a friend of mine to do our annual skate around the lake. We took a chisel and found 5 inches of ice which is enough to hold a skater. It was a beautiful day for an outdoor adventure. As we skated around the lake we found an active beaver house. The beaver had been coming out on the ice to feed. Their tracks were frozen into the top of the ice.
