Looks like the the closely-related species, Common Garter Snake, to me. Ribbon Snakes are somewhat thinner, and have a different coloration.

Nice find!

You're probably right. I guess I usually think of Garter Snakes as having less defined stripes but there seems to be a lot of variation in how they look.
