A Snake Encounter near Coudersport

A friend and I were returning from a trip to Coudersport last Summer, using back roads. We saw this guy stretched across a dirt road just north of Shawville, in Clearfield County. I did swerve to miss it, however, I may have nipped it’s tail. I stopped and backed up, and he was ready for action. Judging by the look on it’s face, and the noise it was making, it was obviously upset. I did get out, and I took a couple of pictures, using the zoom lens, from a distance. After a few moments, we decided that the best thing to do was leave, so we did.
