"And turtles, of course ... all the turtles are free, as turtles, and maybe, all creatures should be."

Stricken Ann and Stricken E found a friend at The Field Museum in Chicago.


The Strickens hiked the Fiery Furnace at Arches National Park. When they saw the kissing turtles arch, they had to have their picture taken with it. Unfortunately, it was too high for them to climb up to it. They were really hoping to see a desert tortoise on the trip, but weren’t so lucky.

The Strickens got Carter a turtle onesie for Christmas. They are so thoughtful.

On the drive back to Michigan, Ann and E saw a lot of animal crossing signs: rams, deer, horses, burros, cattle, etc. In Nevada, they saw signs for turtle crossings.

We went to the civic center in Berkeley to see the Loggerhead Turtles that are supposed to go in the fountain outside, when the fountain gets fixed (as I read on their website). However, turtles were created in 2008 and it’s now 2012, so I don’t know if they’ll ever fix the fountain… which is probably okay, since there were quite a few unsavory looking people in the park back there.
