Long Description:
Why would a turtle cross the road on May the Fourth? To escape some phantom menace, or perhaps seek a new hope on the other side? Several of us were working through a Star Wars geo-art when we encountered this large - and rather scruffy looking - traveler. Slimy? Mudhole? My home this is! The red-eared slider and common box turtle are the two most frequently encountered land turtles in Oklahoma, and from the shell shape and pattern we decided that this was a slider. We saw him safely move along his way and went about our business.

Describe what happened. Example
"Mother Blanding had made her nest between the goldenrod and bluestem outside my window late last June.
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."
