Another little snake

After seeing the snakes I posted about below, I walked a short ways and my dog found a third snake, the one in the bottom pic. It too had been under the leaf litter next to the trail. Guess I need to watch where I walk for awhile.

Oh, and I also found a tick on my head this evening presumably from the riverwalk. This is unusual as I have only rarely got ticks in Colorado but they are something to consider if you travel here in springtime. I guess they have some place in the ecosystem too.

I am just a beginner in snake id so not sure if this is a Western Terrestrial Garter snake or a Plains Garter Snake. I'll try to find out or maybe someone can that knows can note in the comments. SeEtta
