Pituophis catenifer sayi
This snake was about 6 feet long with ligh brown upper body with draker "spots on top and dark "lines" on the side. The under body is much lighter. At first I thought it was a rattle snake, an easy mistake when you come across one of these not two feet away!
Found the snake in the high plateau of New Mexico. He was in a juniper tree enjoying the sun.
