Beaver Ponds in Ophir

Here’s a shot of the beaver ponds just to the Ophir Pass side of “east ophir” taken a few days ago.   You can see East Ophir in the background.

There is actually a National Forest Service remediation site very near this area.  There is a relatively large pile of mine tailings located sufficiently close to the South Fork river.  So, they are going to condense the tailings material into a large pile and “ecapsulate” the pile with material and vegetation … while also engineering proper drainage.
