This Box Turtle was crossing a section of the auto tour road located at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

This photo of the Box Turtle On The Rocks will show you how difficult it is to get close to wildlife while driving the auto tour road. These rocks make lots of noise when you drive over them.
