Sample text

The hardest to take were those with cultural changes in the view, or where vegetation had grown up that either blocked part of the scene or prevented one from backing far enough away to take in the full scene. One cannot always step into Bodmer’s footprint. Bodmer painted an eastern painted turtle near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. For his photo of the turtle, Lindholm was on the Jefferson River in Montana during his coast-to-coast travels as the photographer for Least Heat-Moon’s voyage, described in the book River-Horse.

But Bodmer’s sketch showed the old road ascending a hill to the courthouse. On his second visit, Lindholm found the bottom of the hill; though the courthouse bell tower barely showed above the trees, this was the correct location. Cavein-Rock on the Ohio provides another example of change: a friendly minister took Lindholm out in his boat, and they cruised back and forth by the cave, looking for the nearby island shown in Bodmer’s sketch across from the cave; unfortunately, floods on the Ohio River had washed it away.

This turtle appears to be one that Bodmer found along the banks of the Lehigh River near Bethlehem. Painted turtles are known as “basking turtles” because of their habit of sunbathing at their “hauling out” places, usually rocks, logs, or stumps in shallow water where there is aquatic vegetation. indb 36 2/7/13 5:22 PM Painted Turtle Various subspecies of painted turtles may be found from the east coast to the west coast of North America. This western painted turtle was found near the Jefferson River, a tributary of the Missouri River in western Montana, far from its eastern counterpart painted by Bodmer.
