If I wanted to make homeschooling sound more impressive, I would say, “For Science class today we studied nature at Snoqualmie Falls.” Or, I could just say we finished school early, skipping Science, to show-off the second most popular tourist destination in Washington to our guest.

Snoqualmie Falls is 276 feet high, taller than Niagara Falls, but obviously not as wide.
I have enough pictures to make a baby book for Snoqualmie Falls. But, pictures never do it justice. A picture can’t produce the sound that isn’t a noise, it is a calming presence. A picture can’t help you feel the fine cool mist that greets you or the slight wind that embraces you into the scene. You don’t just see the Falls, you experience them.
Every visit the scene is different. It depends on how deep the river is, how much moisture is in the air, how much wind and what color the foliage is. Today a fall chill and threat of a storm kept everyone away. There were only four other people there when we arrived -two couples who were wishing we weren’t there. AWKWARD!
They might have missed the storm, but we rained on their parade.
