Cottonwood Slough
Alberta, Canada 2001

I walked from Jasper to Cottonwood Slough on a still afternoon, at the end of the winter.

Although the temperature had risen to a balmy -5°C, it was too early to see beavers. The dam building activities of beavers are essential for the creation and maintenance of small lakes like Cottonwood Slough.
