Long Description:
It was mid July, hot and humid. We had just walked to find some geocaches along the road in state game lands 323 and were coming back down the hill toward the car in the parking area. There was a turtle, on the side of the road. Since he was facing the other side of the road, we guessed that he intended to cross.

RDJ-Pup was good and didn't bother the shy critter.
