If you enjoy chasing waterfalls, it would be hard to find a place better than the Northwest, renowned for its lush scenery and countless spectacular falls.

SNOQUALMIE FALLS, WASHINGTON

Located about 30 miles east of Seattle in in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain range, Snoqualmie Falls is one of the state’s most popular attractions. The 268-foot-high waterfall on the Snoqualmie River is world famous, thanks to its appearance in the cult TV series, “Twin Peaks,” as well as a number of films like Jeff Bridges unforgettable creepy “The Vanishing.” While the waterfall is stunning year-round, after heavy rains or snow melt in the spring, it’s so powerful it creates a nearly blinding spray. At the site of the falls, you’ll also find a number of hiking trails, a gift shop, an observation deck, and the romantic Salish Lodge, which offers breathtaking views from atop the waterfall.
