Eastern Box Turtle

This small Eastern Box turtle was crossing the entrance road to Blue Spruce Park on its way to the stream valley below. We moved it off the road in the direction it was headed so that it would be safe.

Box turtles seems to anticipate rain and are often out and about right before a rain storm. About 30 minutes after we saw this one it started to rain very hard.
