A pictoral (and some editorial) on the erosion issue at Cedar Lake

Living on Cedar, I have been noticing an accelerated erosion of the shore line especially on the east and south shores. Below is pictorial with some comment.

Here are the shorelines in general (please note the proximity to path):

Also not how you can visualize where the shoreline was....

Here are some pictures of bushes/trees that are at water's edge. They were not planted there. At one point, there was more land....

Next are pictures of "creeks" that are cutting away at the shoreline.....

These cracks lead to creeks....

And it was good to see a sizable school of minnows....

What's causing it? Can't all be from the muskrats.

Some of it is muskrats....but most of it is from wind (IMHO) and a weak shoreline. Cedar especially has little wind protection. The other lakes are downwind and lower.
