    There one house way out on the on the furthest point of the cliff that almost hangs on the edge of the 200' cliff above the water. The others that may have built there since play second fiddle to that places location.

    My first box turtle of the season from earlier today


    My first black snake of the season from a week or 2 ago



    Some deer that decided not only was i told slow and out of breath to bother running away from (3 surgeries 40lbs and not riding for over a year will take it out of you on a climb...even a small one). They started out as close as the tree next to the trail but apparently i took to long fumbling with my phone so they wondered down the trail.



    And a flock of turkey that between my noisy bike my sasquatch like self and my dog had no interest in hanging out for pictures. 6 or 7 of them...hard to count them suckers are fast

    Came around a fast blind corner and had to lock 'em up before I hit this prehistoric beasty today.

    Wildlife you have seen on trail...post your pics...-islandlakesnapper5-30-16.jpg

    Easily the biggest snapper I've seen. It's hard to gauge the size from the photo except that the trail is about 24" wide at that point. I'd guesstimate that his shell was about 12" wide and about 14-15" long and he was not pleased to be disturbed on his stroll. There was thick brush on both sides and he didn't seem inclined to move, so I squeezed past him with the bike between him and me. He turned towards me looking very pissed off as I went past. I'm sure he was just being defensive, but I've seen enough snappers around our area to know not to mess with them. They have long necks and can strike amazingly quickly if they want to. I learned that after trying to move one off the road with a shovel one day.

    Saw this box turtle hanging out on a ridgeline with a 100 foot drop on one side of him. Hope he was going the other way!

    It's a rooty, rocky climb for us to get up to that ledge, and I find it amazing that he got up there. It's not easy for a bike!

    This is cheating a bit as it's the backyard rather than on the trail. This is what you get when you sit opening a plastic bag of small bolts on your back steps: the local magpies think it's feeding time. They were very insistent and didn't want to leave.

    Great shot, I've got Magpies in my area as well. Smart and conniving they are.
