Your Friendly Hise Hikers Tip: Always Be Kind To All You Encounter. <3
On a recent trek at Folsom Lake, we encountered the absolute tiniest, most adorable turtle on the trail, which we helped relocate off the trail.
We’ve encountered all kinds of critters and creatures on the trail… some we gawk at in amazement at them (butterflies, birds, etc.)… sometimes we help move them out of potential harm’s way (think salamanders and this tiny little turtle)… other times we have to very cautiously navigate our way around it (think rattlesnakes and bears). In all of these encounters, we always lead with curiosity and kindness (yes, even with the bear… haha).
