Really don't think so. (Re: the ID, I agree about the very nice photos!) This would be CA Red-sided, if this were sirtalis. While there are instances of infernalis without the characteristic red head, it's not too common, and the eight upper labials say Coast Garter to me.

This is a very useful site for IDing Garter Snakes:
