Little Turtle hides somewhat ineffectually from this huge fuzzy cotton worm at Bryant Woods Nature Park in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
(It’s not really a worm, it’s just a string of cottony stuff that looks like a worm. Can you identify it? Tell The Girl!)
The Girl’s father captures a rare photo of The Girl, on her way back from the “DANGER DEEP WATER DO NOT ENTER” sign. Little Turtle traveled the rest of the way back to the path in her pocket.
Little Turtle can’t help but think this sign would be more effective if a) this was deep water instead of a field or b) the sign said “WARNING: LEECHES. DO NOT ENTER.”
The Girl attempts to make up for what happened in the previous photo by putting Little Turtle on a short thing. This is much more like it. What was this rusty thing, once upon a time?
Little Turtle does not appreciate this! The Girl seems to be attempting to get him over his fear of heights by putting him on high things. Not cool, The Girl. Not cool.
Whew! Little Turtle made it across the bridge. Good thing he was here for The Girl. She was nervous about the log rolling or tipping!
The Girl, not only is this log bridge unstable, it has termites! Termites, The Girl! Dear everyone, this is clearly Turtle abuse. The Girl has exposed him to a log infected with termites. Goodbye, wide world that Little Turtle never got to explore… goodbyeee….
See how high this bridge is? Time to play Little Turtle’s favorite game: Spot The Turtle! This one’s pretty easy though.
(Still resenting The Girl a little bit for leaving him all alone on this super scary log bridge!)
What ever made anyone think “don’t look down” was a good thing to say? All it makes you do is look down! And this log bridge is so very high… though, not as high as High Bridge, for which Little Turtle is so very grateful!
Maybe Little Turtle can convince The Girl not to go over this bridge. Beware! The bridge is old! To cross this bridge is to cross into the Jungle Of Death! And it’s so very far down to that stream, which runs through the Bryant Woods Nature Park in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
