For today’s post, I’m continuing to share about our Seattle trip. I’m actually splitting this day into 2 posts. This post is about Alex and my trip out to Snoqualmie Falls, which is a beautiful waterfall about 30 miles east of Seattle. It’s located between Snoqualmie and Fall City, Washington.
We parked at the Lower Observation deck. When we got there, I was happy to find a nice bathroom before walking to the falls.
As we followed the trail to the sounds of the falls, I heard a woodpecker. I glanced over and saw a woodpecker through the trees.
As you can see they’ve done something to the trees to entice birds to them. We also saw hummingbirds and cardinals. I could have stayed there for a while just watching the birds, but the 15 year old wasn’t nearly as thrilled as I was about birdwatching.
As we followed the short trail, we came across information about the Snoqualmie Falls Hydroelectric Plant, which is housed near the falls.
Views as we got closer to the falls.
When you get to the end of the board walk and you peak around the corner, you see this.
I’m not a fan of spiders, but this nest was pretty cool. These little things were smaller than a pencil eraser.
Here’s a hummingbird, I caught on camera when we were walking back to the car.
Once we got back to the car, I was wanting to drive up to the Upper Observation deck, but the Alex convinced me not to. Of course, now I’m wishing I would have just gone anyway. Ahhh…live and learn.
So after getting back to our hotel, Alex and I ate some leftovers and just chilled and relaxed in the room until it was time to meet Rob for the Riverboat Dinner Cruise. That post is coming soon.
