He or she was blocking a pretty narrow section of the tail. It took me a while to work up the nerve to go around it.

A couple of weeks ago I was approaching the switch back at the tip of Poop Loop, and there was a log blocking the trail. i said to my self, self, that's a funny way for a big log to fall so I started to move it. As I glanced up and looked that big boy right in the eye. I put the log back, took a few pics, and short cutted the trail and went on my way.

If it were not for that log I would not of been able to avoid him, (or her), my choices would of been to hit him, bunny hop him, or go in the drink. Considering I can't clean the log a bit further, I would of probably gone in the swamp. That would certainly have sucked.
