I saw a large turtle crossing Wheeler Road in Burlington around 10 PM Sunday night. It was in the vicinity of the Seven Springs conservation area between Muller Road and Middlesex Turnpike. Fortunately I saw him in time to come to a stop, as he was right in the middle of my lane. I guess it's just turtle migration season or something!
