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.


The Turtle Rock

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.
