Long Description:
While on my daily run I was on my way back toward home when I ran past this rather large snapping turtle sitting in the middle of the road ... I quickly ran home and grabbed my camera, a walking stick and my husband to take pictures and drove back to where this guy was waiting for me. We got a few pictures then I pushed it off the road and into the grass. It headed down the bank toward the stream.

The whole thing was rather humorous because at the start of my run, I ran out of my driveway and headed up the hill ... there was a rabbit running down the road ... then on the way back toward home - the turtle was there ... hmmm ... I wonder if they were in a race?
