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.

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….
