Snoqualmie Falls is a 270 foot waterfall located in the mountains east of Seattle. This is one of my favorite sights in the Seattle area, and it's really worth taking a car out to the Falls and experiencing the countryside nearby. The waterfall is large and breathtaking. There is an observation deck located right next to the parking lot, or you can walk down the trail that takes you all the way to the base of the falls. There, you can stand on the rocks and feel the water spraying from the waterfall. This is a very scenic point-- don't forget your camera! You may recognize Snoqualmie Falls and the Salish Lodge (located directly above the waterfall) from the opening credits of the "Twin Peaks" television series. Take a moment to look around the lodge as well. There is a lovely gift store. Upstairs, you can dine or just have a drink at the elegant restaurant. Take highway 90 east to the Snoqualmie Parkway exit. Turn left. From there, signs will direct you to Snoqualmie Falls.
