Long Description:
Other two hikers in my group already had moved this northbound turtle across the road. Eastern box turtles are commonly seen around the forested roads in this region which is at the state line boundary between the Cherokee National Forest (TN) and the Pisgah National Forest (NC). The dashed line in the Google map is the state boundary, which also happens to be the AT path here. This section of Highway US70 runs between Greeneville, TN to Asheville, NC.

"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."
