PhotoPOSTcard: Snoqualmie Falls, Washington

Last Updated on 10/27/20 by quiltripping

Featured in the cult TV show “Twin Peaks”, the falls get about 2 million visitors a year. For most of the year, the water that feeds the falls is actually diverted to generate hydroelectricity, and then the water is released back into the river below the falls. Though even with only one percent of its water flowing, the 268 foot waterfall still produces a powerful plunge into the pool below.  The falls can be viewed form an Upper Park area with three different overlooks, or the Lower Park area, which is where this photo was taken.  If you are in the area, it is definitely worth a stop.

Thanks for visiting
