...in the middle of the desert outside of joshua tree, California.

When we were in Joshua Tree, CA, this old gentleman wearing a t-shirt that had an alien head and just the word "believe" written on it, saw that I had a camera and asked if I'd like to take a few pictures of the desert turtles that he'd rescued. We said sure, hopped in the back of his pick-up and drove to his house in the middle of nowhere. He had a whole compound devoted to the rescued turtles and told us stories about them all. The little guy was rescued from a group of birds that were pecking at him. His name was Batman and he only had 3 legs.
