Long Description:
I was out for a run and saw what looked like a rock in the middle of the trail. I was about to kick it off and then noticed it was a 2" long turtle so I took a photo or two, picked him up and moved him towards the side of the trail he was facing and then moved on. I have seen snapping turtles before in this area but not that small or very often. I thought I logged the Locationless version of this and it turns out I did and here is my Locationless Cache Log.

By chance we were sitting on the porch when we noticed little blandings in the same location we had seen the mother take 2 months earlier."
