this is the first snapping turtle i've ever seen. wow! he was ferocious too!
EDIT: Apparentely i missed some better pictures from our weekend, so i'm adding them here:
snapping turtle snapping at the canoe paddle
just so you can see how big that guy was.
neat picture of the woods and the water. Can you tell how annoying it can be to have duvi in the canoe with us - do you think we're just a bit tilted to the right?
through the reeds.
"hey, that would be an awesome log to 'lumberjack'!" not quite. but still an adventure.
we are literally canoeing on the same trail that we have run/walked/skied numerous times! FYI: these are the SAME woods that flooded and froze over during our winter here
i could get used to this.
maneuvering through the trees was a challenge (we were covered in spider webs), but it was really beautiful. i had the "kiss 'da girl" song from the little mermaid stuck in my head the whole time.
isn't he awesome?
just chillin with my canoe on a park bench.
a normal day.
