On a bright autumn day, the colour of the cottonwood leaves reflected in the water is almost too intense to look at! It appears as molten gold spread on the calm surface of the lagoon. The too-perfect image in the still surface of the water was suddenly broken by the appearance of the local beaver – adding the expanding pattern of ripples to mark its passage.
