Hi Andrew--

I don't know if you've checked out the Puget Sound Lidar Consortium yet - they do have some Chehalis River watershed data, and NOAA's Coastal Lidar page shows that there's a decent spread of DOGAMI lidar shot in 2009 around coastal Grays Harbor.  Dunno if it overlaps your area of interest, but they're both decent sources of DEM data.

It depends on your definition of close.  I am in Tacoma which is about an hour and a half away.  I am actually more interested in sport aviation class airplanes.  I am about 3/4 the way through building an experimental plane that I hope will be able to take off at about 35 mi / hr with a gross weight of about 1000 lbs. with a wingspan of 8 feet (yea, I know, that is why it is experimental) which would allow you to park it in a garage or standard parking spot, and at least theoretically, take off and land in front of your house.  I am interested in drone technology because I think that would be a relatively inexpensive and safe way to do the early flight testing.  Also, if it does turn out to work, autonomous flight could make the technology available to more people.  I have virtually no experience with electronics or programing so I am looking for anyone who would be interested in helping me with the electronics part of the project.  I would be willing to exchange expertise in carbon fiber manufacturing in return.
