Snoqualmie Falls

Snoqualmie Falls, Washington.

If you're visiting Seattle and have either a rental car or staying with a friend, then you must take the time to see the beautiful Snoqualmie Falls. Located about 30 miles east of the Seattle, Snoqualmie Falls is second only to the Mount Rainier in number of visitors per year. There are two ways to view the falls. The easiest is to view them from an observation platform which gives an excellent vista of the falls. This by the way is where the photograph in the upper right hand corner of this page was taken. If you want a closer look, you can always hike down the one mile trail to another observation platform at the bottom of the hill where the accompanying park is located. Located at the crest of the falls you'll find the Salish Lodge, which is at least as luxurious as the location is beautiful.
