Turtles are Happy Together

It took six hikes to capture these six turtles gathering at “Turtle Bridge”.
First we discovered this path to the lake, the second time, we saw the turtles on the bridge.The next time, we took a camera and clippers to clear a photographic path. The clipping scared them away that day. The next day no were found, and the next day only small turtles. But today we hit the jackpot, six turtles sunning themselves on “Turtle Bridge”.
