morning visitor identified

After doing some research, it seems that my Saturday morning visitor is an Eastern Box Turtle or Terrapene carolina carolina and he is a female and not a male.

According to this web page, my visitor is a rarity because it's normal habitat is "coastal regions and river valleys, rarely going above 500’ altitude." I encountered my visitor at over 900' altitude.
