Mark:
First, I do not have a web site so I suspect you are referring to my son Ryan's 'Rubber Boa' web site. Ryan lives in Utah.

The Rubber Boa has an extensive distribution in Washington that includes much of the state similar to Oregon and Idaho. As for the Olympic Peninsula, I once surveyed a boa found at Lake Crescent about 10 -12 miles west of Port Angeles and have had reliable report of the species occurring further south and east of Port Angeles. Since Sequim is east of Port Angeles, the boa simply has to occur in the vicinity of Sequim.

I visited Montana De Oro park once at lower elevations just to see the habitat. It has been my experience that the use of artificial cover enhances encounters of the boa (and many other species) in many types of habitat including where there is an abundance of rocks / rock outcrops.
