It was hot and muggy, but the bugs were not bad at all, surprisingly. While we didn't see any baby turtles, we did see four adult turtles, three snapping turtles and one painted turtle, all at very close range, since they were literally right in the trail. Although we skirted around the mama snappers, we did disturb them, unfortunately, because they were no longer there when we returned. We also saw frogs and a bald eagle. It's great to see all these critters, and so fun to watch those boys playing together! It was a really nice morning.
