The only one I've seen in my 38 years in WA was in the Colockum about two years ago while grouse hunting. It was sunning itself to get rid of cold from the frosty night. I almost stepped on it but it was slow moving due to the coolness. It was about 3 1/2 feet long and I shot it's head off with 20 ga #6s. I didn't want it to bite the dog.
