I had purchased my new Canoe and I was looking out for a very beautiful spot where I could start off on a maiden paddle trip in my canoe nicknamed "Dreams". I saw a small description of this pond in a web section called "Places to paddle in NH" by the 'Applachian Mountain Club'. There were no directions given but it said that once I get to this pond, I would like to send a Thank-you note to my God. I started off on a wild goose chase to get to know as to how to reach this Pond. I called up many people and got tit-bit pieces of information and summed up everything to finally reach this pond.
This pond is a naturally formed pond with all the hard work done by the "Beavers" (Thanks to these beautiful creatures). Beavers are small animals and resemble the shape of a large mouse. They are harmless creatures and fear humans. They are pure vegetarian eaters and rely on Fresh Bark and plantations for their diet. When I spoke to Beatrice, I came to know that this pond was formed by streams of water, which was blocked and built in the form of a natural Dam by the Beavers. It is the hard work put in by the Beavers for around "54" years and also other natural conditions that has helped create this pond.
Precautions: You can park your car on the left on a small road, which leads to the woods. Don't park your car on the side of the road, as it is too small to let other vehicles move. Please DON'T LITTER IN ANY WAY, as this is a Protected Reserve. As you walk on the banks of the Pond, you could see the naturally built dam by the Beavers. Note: Motorboats or motor driven boats are not ALLOWED to preserve the Aquatic life.
My background: I am an Automation engineer (Computer science) graduate and have been born and brought up in Bombay, India. I came to the United States around a year and half back and am a nature lover. I live in Derry, Newhampshire.
A note on Beatrice:
Apart from thanking the creator, one must appreciate "Beatrice Trum Hunter" for donating this piece of property of around 200 acres for preservation and development for the future generation so that many people like you and me could Paddle on this beautiful pond. She has authored a number of books on "Nutrition" and shares an exclusive hobby of "Ice Crystal Photography" and has won a number of awards for the same. I am happy to say that today United States is an example to the world for the efforts put in by good leaders in the past as also to look and think forward to the future generation.
