Box Turtle and Ancient Guardian
The second box turtle of the day. The tree behind it is in one of three or four very large White Oaks that I believe once lined a farm road that has been been swallowed by the forest. One of these giants has collapsed since I was last here, its dried leaves still on the branches, the trunk an enormous thing with perhaps some still-good wood inside. It would be hard to get the wood out, but it would make an incredible table.
