A TORTOISE CROSSED THE ROAD

This morning marked the first time I’ve ever pulled over to help a tortoise across the (dirt) road. Very big dude. I could see from his print trail that he’d already tried a few other times to get up the embankment. Nancy Klein was driving by and stopped to see what was going on. He ended up not needing my (our) help, got up and over, then eyed me for a while before ambling off. Profound wow. Maybe the biggest wild one I’ve seen out here…

From the front… He’d turned towards us after he made it up the embankment.
