During my 7 mile walk last Saturday I couldn’t help but feel like I was being watched. Rock Cut State Park is just over 3000 acres of land, so I guess it wouldn’t be a huge shock to find some wildlife here. 🙂 As it so happens I happened to catch a few spectators to my hike.
There were a lot of chipmunks about, but I did come across a couple that were very interested in what I was doing. One of them even decided to grab a snack as he/she watched me pass through.
Later in my walk I was passing by a small inlet from the lake and I noticed 5 painted turtles sitting on a fallen tree sunning themselves. When I stopped and raised the camera they all dove into the water. As I watched them disperse one stuck it’s head up out of the water for a second. Then I noticed that there was a 6th turtle that was too brave to be bothered by my presence.
