I would have to say Rough Earth Snake. There are very few other options it could be, being a small plain snake, with a small pointy head.

Nice spotting! Is there any chance you saw what its belly looked like? (color? pattern?) I'm sure it had a plain color and no pattern, but that color will help with the ID.

That's my best guess at this point. Cute little snake.
