Avalon Moccasin: Heads or Tails?

We were on a wander down some Jefferson County dirt roads when we came upon this moccasin, sunning in the road where it happened to be paved for a couple of miles.

The snake crossed as we watched and went into the rough area near a burn pile where clearing had recently taken place.

Big head!

Big tail!

In the sunlight, the colors and patterns were more visible. Such a pretty (if dangerous) snake.

As an aside, Avalon is the name of one of Ted Turner's properties. We were just down the road from the main gate.
