Garter snake in the woods for Photo Hunter

We were walking through the woods yesterday when my daughter saw this long , lengthy snake. I don't think my id is far off to call this a garter snake.It fits the description I read of a garter snake. Its pattern was one oof alternating dark and light stripes.This snake looked like it might have been about a meter [yard] long if fully stretched out, from its head to its tail. It disappeared into the ground near the base of a tree. I assume there was a hole in the ground there.

Yep, it is a garter snake. Very nice to have around the yard as they eat earwigs and other beetles that are hard on the garden. Nice capture. . .

I don't know what kind of snake this is but we had one in our yard and I almost stepped on it. I really don't like snakes at all! My stripes are here.
