Turtle, Mosquito, and Road

This is a story of a juvenile common snapping turtle being stalked by mosquitoes. This turtle took a challenge by attempting to cross a gravel road, safety. The driver, me, is a sustainable traveler. He saw this turtle and made sure it safely traveled off the road. Sustainable travel is an adventure one takes while respecting their the environment and the animals that live within.
