One of the best parts of living here in New York is all the nature that surrounds us. There are tons of hiking trails, parks, creeks, and bike paths to use each and every day.

Sometimes when you are out and about you catch something on video that can make you smile and brighten your day.

Check out this video that an Erie County park ranger posted on Twitter yesterday. He caught a turtle trying to make its way down a hill when he took a tumble. It looks like a really nasty fall but in the end, the turtle just gets up and walks away.

The ranger was walking along some of the trails in the Eighteen Mile Creek Park in Hamburg when they caught the turtle taking a tumble.


To be honest, that tumble the turtle took is how sometimes I feel on Mondays heading back into work! hahaha

You never know what you will see when you head out in the parks across Western New York, but make time this Summer to go and explore.

There are 23 different parks that are part of the Erie County parks system and 5 parks in Niagara County.  Most parks in Erie County are open to the public from 7 am until 9 pm during the Summer and 7 am until dusk during the winter months. You can check Erie County parks HERE and Niagara County parks HERE
