Paid A Visit to Snoqualmie Falls in Washington

Snoqualmie Falls is an amazing 82 meters or 268 feet waterfall on on the Snoqualmie River between Snoqualmie and Fall City, Washington, USA. My friend drove me there during my 5-day visit in Washington. From where she live in Monroe, it is around 29 miles away and it took us around 40 minutes to reach there. What you can do when you are driving a Porsche sports car! Yes, my friend drives a Porsche when we drove there. She was really driving so fast and sometimes ignores the speed limit on the road. I am not scared with her fast driving but with the fines she might pay once she will be caught by the traffic officer.

We had a walk on the area of Snoqualmie. This waterfall is one of Washington’s most popular scenic attractions. It is perhaps best known internationally for its appearance in the cult television series Twin Peaks.
You can have a good view of the fall on its observation deck. I also bought some travel souvenirs in its gift shop there.

There are two hydroelectric power plants at Snoqualmie Falls, both currently operated by Puget Sound Energy. Power plant 1 was built in 1898 and operates at the base of the falls embedded in the rock 270 feet (82 m) below the surface. It was the world’s first completely underground power plant.
