Hiking to Snoqualmie Falls


I’ve been neglecting a few posts. A couple weeks back, on a beautiful Seattle day, I escaped the house with my youngest boys, Nick and Josh, and went on a short adventure to Snoqualmie Falls, which is due east of Seattle on Highway 90. We had been up to the lookout point near the top on 100_0530several occasions, but this time we were determined to hike down the trail to the bottom, and get close to the water.

It was a perfect day for a hike, if not a little too warm — which 100_0527meant that a few others had the same idea we had. But the trail was short (but steep), and we had a blast. The Falls are about a 25 minute drive from our house, and we spent about 90 minutes hiking and frolicking, so it 100_0536took us less than 3 hour to check this location off of our Washington State tourist checklist.  It’s amazing that we’ve lived here since 2004 (minus that year-long detour to Utah) and I’ve been hardly anywhere. I am determined to get out and see some of this great state this next year, beginning with the Olympics this next spring. Any other recommendations for must-see locations? I’m particularly fond  of scenic drives/road-trips, so I’m open to suggestions.
