Thank you, I have changed this to a Puget Sound garter

The entire coloration is classic pickeringii the dark blue narrow stripe along with the black belly and cream underside of the neck. Also the body shape is more sirtalis than ordinoides.

Thank you, what indicates sirtalis rather than ordinoides? I did not count any scales

Pretty mangled. It looks like a sirtalis to me.
