Wasn't from JT. WW, I know it looks strange but I pretty sure it's a Ruber.

John, any chance this could be a scut from somewhere in the Joshua Tree area? Obviously if it was found anywhere else in riverside co, range eliminates that possibility, but something about this single shot looks super scut-y with those really bold facial stripes, minimal black on the tail, dark borders to the saddles, and overall brown look. Plus it's hitting that classic pose! Had to throw the possibility out there on the off chance it could confirm their presence in Riverside, but trust you if you confirm its ID as ruber
