Looks like a gopher snake, one of the more common snakes in SoCal.  Not poisonous.  You got a nice picture since they move pretty fast so its tough to get a good picture of one.
Why be normal? . . . where's the fun in that?

Gopher.  Looks like a baby one.
There's also one that looks just like it called a bull snake that grows much larger.

Small point: Bullsnakes are a midwestern subspecies of the Gopher snake...
