Beaver Klll: "kill"is the Dutch word for stream; the Dutch were the first Europeans to settle in the region and found many beaver dams along the watercourse) is renowned as a trout stream. The photo above was taken just across the road from the grounds of the house in which we were staying.
a short video while walking along this stream from above the waterfall to near the edge of the pond.
Two Canada geese were paddling on the pond. I saw several different species of birds over the weekend, and will publish more photos in a subsequent post, "Birds of the Beaverkill."
On Saturday morning I saw this doe and fawn on the meadow near the pond. That evening I had a closer encounter with what may have been the same pair which, along with photos of other animals, I'll show in a later post, "A Beaverkill Bestiary."
Apple blossoms in the small orchard on the opposite side of the house.
Our Sunday dinner was a delicious chicken barbecue prepared by the Beaverkill Valley Fire Department.
Parked in front of the Co-Op Store across from the firehouse was this antique pickup truck belonging to a Connecticut construction company.
Parked beside the store was this beautifully maintained early model Mustang.
