Snoqualmie Waterfalls

Along Interstate 90 in Washington state are many hidden waterfalls.

You can discover where to find these falls by checking out Bryan Swan’s excellent waterfall web site: Northwest Waterfall Survey. Bryan’s site is a treasure trove of pictures, maps, and information on the waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest. Check it out. Maybe you’ll share in the wonder of these beautiful places in creation.
