Round Pond State Park and Natural Area, South Hero VT (Google, OSM)

Description

The snake was on the shale beach, as close to the lake as it could be without being in the water. It had a good-sized bulge about halfway down, suggesting that it was busy digesting. It stayed in the same place for the forty minutes or so we were on the beach, moving just a bit from time to time.
