The Power of Snoqualmie Falls

We had some errands to run yesterday in the Snoqualmie Valley and stopped by Snoqualmie Falls on the way home. The river has been at flood stage all week – with many parts of the valley flooded. The falls were raging with power, with more water coming over than I’ve ever seen before.

We tried to get a better look and I got drenched by the spray.

Snoqualmie Falls drops 268 feet, higher than Niagra Falls though certainly not as wide. Here’s how it looked on some of our earlier visits different times of year when we hiked further down for a better view.

I wish I had a picture from almost 40 years ago – no smart phones then – when Bob and I dined at the restaurant overlooking the falls – on our first date.

Well done, dear!

  1. On your first date, that’s so sweet! The fall is amazing, beautiful and so powerful! ❤️

  2. That sound like a first date with someone who wanted to you remember it – and who knew he was dating the love of his life!

  3. Sweet! First date! Ah, the memories. We went there a few years ago in the spring and the flowers, mostly rhododendrons, were gorgeous! Nice pics and video, Susanne.

  4. Wow! And thank goodness all that surging water creates electrical power 💌
