Turtles on the Sarsaparilla Trail

This past weekend I was feeling a little uninspired. Despite all of the ideas running through my head for future client sessions, I couldn’t come up with a single blog post.
That was when my wonderful husband thought of going for a walk along one of the Greenbelt Trails here in Ottawa.

We ended up going to the Sarsaparilla Trail just off of Richmond Road. It is a little trail, only 0.8km long, but it is pack full of trail-y goodness. It has a little picnic area and a boardwalk overlooking a beaver pond. And though we didn’t see any beavers, we did see a great deal of wildlife considering how small the trail is.

Snapping TurtleThis big guy was one of two large snapping turtles we spotted. We also watched several red-painted turtles and fed some chipmunks too.

It was a great afternoon (after which I got some delicious sushi – yum), and it gave me material for multiple posts!
