Default Snoqualmie Falls




Snoqualmie Falls is a 268 ft (82 m) waterfall on the Snoqualmie River between Snoqualmie and Fall City, Washington, USA. It is one of Washington's most popular scenic attractions, but is perhaps best known internationally for its appearance in the cult television series Twin Peaks. More than 1.5 million visitors come to the Falls every year, where there is a two acre (8,000 mē) park, an observation deck, and a gift shop.

Most of the river is diverted into the power plants, but at times the river is high enough to flow across the entire precipice, which creates an almost blinding spray. High water occurs following a period of heavy rains or snow followed by warm rainy weather. This can occur during the rainy season which lasts from November through March. Wikipedia Commons has pictures of the falls taken on 22 December 2005, 7 November 2006 and 11 January 2006 showing the massive flow of water that occurs at these times. During high water, the falls take on a curtain form.

For the Snoqualmie People, who have lived for centuries in the Snoqualmie Valley in western Washington, Snoqualmie Falls is central to their culture, beliefs, and spirituality. A traditional burial site, to the Snoqualmie, the falls are "the place where First Woman and First Man were created by Moon the Transformer" and "where prayers were carried up to the Creator by great mists that rise from the powerful flow."[1] The mists rising from the base of the waterfall serve to connect Heaven and Earth.[2]

About 5 years ago, me and a few of my friends visited this and we hiked all the way to the bottom. We took some food with us and had a great picnic at the bottom right next to the waterfall. It was so beautiful and relaxing. Since then, I have been wanting to go back but never had a chance.

This is what it looked like.
