After a week off I was driving back to Yakima from Sea-Tac on Sunday and my wife suggested that I check out Snoqualmie Falls on the way home. I've lived in Yakima for a year now and have driven back and forth over the pass several times but didn't even know the falls were there until about 5 days ago... so I had to check it out. I was blown away by the power and the beauty. I'm told I probably went to check it out at the right time too because that area has had a lot more rain this season and they probably wouldn't have been as spectacular early last fall for instance.

If you haven't seen them and you're on your way to Seattle definitely stop and see them. It's only a few minutes off of I-90 and it's free!
