Notes:
I have lived at this location on a canyon since 1993 and never seen a snake, though have had many other wildlife sightings. It took me a while to ID this snake as I didn't realize the markings can be so different between individuals. It looks like this snake is out of it's range, which makes it more interesting. Unless my ID is incorrect. It was about 4 feet long. About 7-8" was hanging off the end of the brick.
