Herping in Placervillce, CA

I recently moved to Placerville, CA.
I have been out road cruising and board flipping with no results. My 3 year old is wanting to see a "wild snake" I haven't been herping in a while like (15 years) and would appreciate any help/feedback.

Anyone know of any good areas/roads in El Dorado county?

Thanks in advance.

I found a dead baby gopher snake. It was half sunken in about in a reservoir right off shore.

I really want to find kingsnakes!

I caught a gopher yesterday in a rocky ravine about 100 yards off the American river. I also saw a racer in the same area, but it was so fast I don't know where it went once in the bushes (my first wild racer sighting!).

Am I looking in the wrong topography for kings? I thought rocky, by water with forest and meadows should be good??

Found this alligator lizard. Looks gravid. Any idea what species, not sure if it's a southern or northern.
