A great day for a hike

Julie and I went for a hike yesterday. The weather was just perfect and some of the trees are really starting to show their color.

As we got close to home, we found this unwelcome guest sitting on the path, soaking up some rays. I don't mind snakes, but I wish they would choose the hundreds of acres of open space, instead of the path I use every day.

Our ever-alert dog had just walked over the snake. Never noticed him and fortunately the snake didn't seem bothered. Anyone know what kind he is? You can double-click on the picture for a better view.

UPDATE: My mom determined that this is a Wandering Garter Snake.
