That picture is very, very dark...almost impossible to make out the snake. I can see what looks like some tri-color banding, almost like a milk snake or mountain king, but just can't tell. However, from where you live, I can narrow it down to 3 banded varieties that occur in that area. Possibilities are New Mexico Milk Snake (Lampropeltis triangulum celeanops), Long Nosed Snake (Rhinocheilus leconti), Texas Coral Snake (Micrurus fulvius tenere). I have my doubts about it being a Coral Snake, but I just can't tell from that photo. If you could post a clearer picture, then I.D. would be easy.
