Snake...haven’t seen one like this

Thread starter #1
So, my oldest son called from his truck and said there was a good sized snake in the road near our neighbors. His initial description made me think a copperhead and knowing they have dogs outside, I made a call down to them to check it out and it slithered off under a rock. When he showed me the picture, I never had seen one like this before. Was thinking some coloration of a milk snake?? I’ve learned so much from the answers from @NC Hillbilly and @Nicodemus so I figured I would throw this one out there. Pretty snake for sure

That's one I have never seen around my neck of the woods in 53 years.

I can only remember seeing about 6 corn snakes. Saw an amazing orange colored one crossing the road on a rainy night several years ago. Most have been similarly colored as the one pictured previously. Gray to grayish brown with rust colored markings.
 
Corn Snake. Strangest colored one I've ever seen had colors almost florescent orange. That was 40 years ago and It was coming off Mr. Curtis land near the sand pit in Greene County. It was calm/tame too.
