You know how I said this year I was gonna go on more day trips? Well I've already held up my end of the bargain, world!
My friend Holly invited me out to take photos in Snoqualmie Falls and North Bend on our day off and I instantly responded with "HELL YEAH."
So we took the 45-minute drive Thursday morning out to the Falls with coffee in hand, and went on a hike. It was clear in Seattle that morning, but once we got into Snoqualmie, the rain started coming - as did the fog.
This was the best shot I could get of the Great Northern (or the Salish Lodge in real life), and the fog completely washed over the Falls.
To get a better view of the Falls, we took the hike down the trail to the boardwalk over the river.
But once we got to the bottom of the hill, the boardwalk was closed. So no Falls for us that day, but I did get to find out that I'm not in shape. So that was fun.
After taking the long hike back up the hill, we drove into downtown North Bend, or the fictional town of Twin Peaks.
More fog, but this time it made for some eerie goodness. Laura Palmer, nooooo!
We even stepped into the Double R to see how much they'd kept it intact, but there were no commemorative mugs to take home. Now that I think of it, we should have ordered a damn fine cup of coffee and a piece of cherry pie. Oh well, maybe next time.
Are you a fan of Twin Peaks? I've been watching the show on Netflix this last month and I'm loving it. I need to do an Audrey-inspired outfit one of these days.
