A large chunk of rock that looks like a turtle on the embankment of the railroad track crossing Ellison Road in rural Allen County, Indiana.


Untitled 16

The turtle climbing up the side of the railroad embankment is actually a large chunk of iron ore that fell off of a train car decades ago. It has been there at least since the 1950s.

I photographed it looking east from Yohne Road in rural southwest Allen County, Indiana.
