Turtles on the Sulphur Gulch Trail in Parker, Colorado
On Thursday, May 12, 2022, we walked for about three miles on the Sulphur Gulch Trail in Parker, Colorado.
This is a trail that we walk on frequently. We have seen deer, ducks, frogs, and snakes on our walks. Today my son and I spotted turtles resting on a log in the water. The first time we saw them they jumped in the water. We only looked away for a second and they were gone. The second time they jumped in the water after we accidentally scared the ducks near them.
There is a blank spot on this page. Normally I post a picture of whatever cool, memorable thing I saw. Well today, I didn’t get that picture. I will admit that I almost didn’t even include this in the journal because it would be missing the photo. I’ll get the picture some other time, but today I got so much more – and that’s what Our Fun Pass is about.
We were both really excited about seeing the turtles even though it was just for a second. They disappeared so quick that we checked with each other to make sure we really saw the turtles. We laughed together. We shared a moment or two that was memorable.
We didn’t travel far for the experience, spend any money, or plan anything. Today was a good reminder how precious these moments are.
