Default Dicamptodon Habitat?

I've been on this thread a lot, and I keep seeing how everyone goes looking for these guys. However none of you guys show pics of them in there natural habitat. I live up north in washington close to the mountains, and snuggled up in some woods. I've found exactly 1 individual in my area woods, a full grow adult between 7"-10" that I kept for a bit to observe "him" and let him go back where I found him.

Basicly what I'm trying to say is...can one of you guys post some pic of them so I can see what there habitat looks like? I really want to find a good spot to go on a herping trip for these guys

Thanks for your time,
Kevin

On this thread, if you scroll down to the ladies with the nets, they were finding dicamp larvae.

Well...thank you for that. I guess I missed that one, but I'm glad to see some of the habitat.

There were a few very rocky river beds and they were among the rocks all through the area.

Ah, what wonderful memories that is bringing back.
