While exploring in the city recently, I stumbled upon another box turtle friend. It was sunning itself on an offshoot of the Lowline Trail. I snapped several photos while it patiently waited for me to finish up. It slowly made it’s was towards the grass, and I let it on it’s merry way. It was such an interesting find in the city!
