Pennsylvania Spring

That is Downtown Pittsburgh.
(PIC taken May ’85)

But just eight miles South is a different World.

This is Boyce Park on the grounds of what used to be Mayview State Hospital. There is a lovely Wetland area here in the valley of Chartiers Creek.

We see this Great Blue Heron often here.

Duck Family.

Hmm, what is this?

It's a Spiny Soft Shell Turtle. Pennsylvania's "Sea Turtle". Shell about 16"-18" diameter, a big critter, Eh?
