Snoqualmie Falls


Snoqualmie Falls is Washington's most popular waterfall with over 1.5 million people visiting each year. Located only 25 miles outside of Seattle, Snoqualmie Falls is among the United States most magnificent waterfalls. The roaring water is a sight to behold and a useful source of naturally created hydro-electric energy for the area. You may see the falls from a handy playground area using a stage providing 180-degree views of the waterfall.

The waterfall is a 268 foot, 82-meter drop on the Snoqualmie River below. At the top, there's a luxurious mountain lodge hotel the Salish Lodge. Famous for 4-star service and Northwestern designs, the resort comes with a famed dining area and an observation deck. There's also a two-acre playground, gift shop, and observation deck along the ridge.

When Native Americans came, they discovered a bounty of raw bulbs, berries and roots around the prairie. Deer and mountain goats have been plentiful. Although there were no salmon over the falls, the upper Snoqualmie River became a seasonal rendezvous and developed place as commerce among indigenous peoples increased. They also founded villages in Fall Town and Tolt (Carnation).

From 1877, there have been many logging operations in the area. In ancient times, the logs were hauled across the falls and the river down into Everett and Puget Sound. From 1889, entrepreneurs financed and constructed a railway (the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern) to the valley, starting timber resources to the entire world industry.

In 1889, the town of Snoqualmie was discovered by Charles Baker, a civil engineer. He also assembled an underground power plant at the falls in the 1890s which still functions today. This power plant led to electricity and jobs, and shortly the establishment of a small town.

Nice click, really natural photo

Wow, awesome photo!

Majestuoso, la creación es maravillosa. El ambiente es increíble, por ello debemos cuidarlo.

Washington state is full of natural beauty. I've never been to the falls but I've driven through snoqualmie pass numerous times on I-90. Went out to the Gorge for a concert, it was about a 3 hr drive but the setting was spectacular.

Just wow! My jaw literally dropped after seeing this photo! It is really amazing!

Looks absolutely unbelievable!!!

Wow...Such a spectacular view!

Wonderful place!

Nature never ceases to amaze me. There is something about waterfalls that makes them so intimidating in my eyes - true power and beauty of nature. Excellent photography!

When looking at this photo, I carefully see how beautiful our planet is and the majesty of our God when creating all things for the delight of humanity, it hurts that we do not know how to appreciate them. too relaxing that landscape

The photography is excellent. What a very picturesque nature view. Thanks for sharing this with us. Vey fabulous and captivating. I wish I can visit that place sometimes in the near future.

fantastic nature!

Superb photography, great information, a really excelent post.

Place added in my bucket list :)

Piękny krajobraz.

Wow , so beautiful

Another point of view, almost all the photographs I have seen of these falls are from below and frontal. From this perspective, the greatness of the surrounding forests can be appreciated. I imagine that from over there one should feel at the top of the world and the thunderous sound of the water hitting the rocks should be like a song that makes one believes that is capable of achieving anything. A very inspiring photo, thanks for sharing.

Excellent photo! Upvoted and following!
