|This is a Tennessee Box Turtle and I estimate it to be at least 40 years old, if not older.|
|Isn't she pretty?|
|Can you find the hidden creature?|
|Here's a closer look....|
|There...do you see the toad now?|
Further down the hill, we encountered a very large fallen tree across the path. We had to go under some branches and over the trunk in order to get to the other side and make our way down to the railroad tracks.
This next pictures is where the trunk split when the wind blew it over. Not sure if the picture does it justice, but it is a very large tree that split and fell. The brown inner section is where the part of the trunk used to be attached!
Oh, yeah, this isn't from the hike. This is my birthday brownies that Jim made for me! YUMMY!
