One of my favorite things to see each year are the big snapping turtles that come crawling out of the Pigeon River to lay their eggs. I came across this once recently while driving along Highway 593 on the Ontario side of the river. The turtle was actually in the middle of the road, so I pulled over to watch it cross over into the grass on the other side. Once it reached the grass it laid down and sat there for a long time without moving. I figured it was getting ready to lay eggs so after watching it for a few minutes and taking a few photos I went on my way. Always a treat to see these guys!
