Shalda Creek at Bohemian Road


  1. Creek looks rather high. Or is there a beaver dam someplace?

  2. There could very well be a beaver damn upstream, BB. Also, we had that big snowstorm in April, and there's a lot of saturated ground. I was going to say we're near the mouth of the creek, too, where it empties into Lake Michigan, but suddenly I'm wondering if I took this shot where I thought I did. Must check next time I'm down that way.

  3. I'm looking at this photo now and thinking that maybe I didn't take the shot at Bohemian Road, after all. Be that as it may (and I won't change the title at this late date), here's the first sentence of an article by Eric Carlson in the May 12 Leelanau Enterprise: "A burgeoning beaver population building dams on Shalda Creek within Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore may be responsible for high water levels in Little Traverse Lake."
