Wildlife gets pretty tame around Tahoe Donner but this takes the cake. This beaver pond is right next to Skislope Way at Alder Creek. The dam is at the far end and at picture right is the owner’s lodge only 5 yards from the pavement!
There’s also a cabin a 30 yards to the left of the image and a 2nd dam on the other side of Ski Slope Way. Panorama created with Photoshop Photomerge.
