Photographer's Note

This is another old collection. It's Snoqualmie Falls.

Located just 25 miles outside Seattle - Snoqualmie Falls is one of the United States most stunning waterfalls. The crashing falls is a sight to behold -- and also a major source of naturally generated hydro-electric power for the region. You can view the falls from a convenient park area with a platform giving 180 degree views of the waterfall. The waterfall is a 268 foot, 82 meter wonder on the Snoqualmie River visited by over 1.5 million people per year. The Falls were featured in the popular cult television show "Twin Peaks". Snoqualmie Falls is a sacred place for Native Americans culture and spirituality. At the top of Snoqualmie Falls, there is a luxury mountain lodge hotel -- the Salish Lodge. Renowned for 4 star service and Northwestern style, the hotel features a famous dining room looking out onto the falls. Consider taking a break at Salish Lodge for a drink or snack after you visit the falls. Salish Lodge is renowned for its multi-course country breakfasts.
