Video: Snoqualmie Falls

It isn’t located in North Central Washington, but it is still one of the more beautiful sights in the state. After a recent trip across the mountains, I thought I’d post a look at Snoqualmie Falls in the springtime.

The Salish Lodge overlooks the falls and there is a large outdoor park downstream for viewing the spectacle. There is also a gift shop / snack bar too, so souvenirs, snacks, and beverages aren’t a problem either.

For those that like small towns, just a couple miles south of the falls is the old downtown area of the town of Snoqualmie Falls. There are a number of great little small town businesses there, and also a whole lot of things to see for anyone interested in railroads or railroad history.

Video: A Drive Across Blewett Pass

We took a trip to the west side of the state recently, and on the way back we recorded going up and over Blewett Pass. It was a great day, and a very nice drive.

Blewett Pass runs north/south and connects the Ellensburg/Cle Elum area to the Leavenworth/Wenatchee area. Highway 97 runs through the mountains there, and the roadway is followed by Swauk Creek on the south side and Peshastin Creek on the north side.

Hopefully this year we will be making more videos of North Central Washington to go with the photos we’ve been taking. Road tripping around our area is a great way to spend a day or weekend.

Get out on the road and explore North Central Washington this year!
