Making Tracks

The tide can occasionally be so low that it exposes a mud flat at the mouth of Graham Creek by the bridge on Cheneyville Road.  I wish there was something to use for size comparison, but you'll have to take my word for it when I say that the troughs in this photo are roughly a foot wide.  They were made by a snapping turtle.  I didn't see it but I know it was a snapper because it is the only turtle in Maryland that can grow this large.
