Simple Gifts

I believe I live in one of the most beautiful places in the world; the Snoqualmie Valley. I get to see amazing things everyday. It's time to celebrate that. (You can view pictures in larger format by clicking on them)

Upper Twin Falls with Katie and camera

Sometimes it's good to rediscover your 'back yard'. I haven't been to Twin Falls as much lately. Katie had never been, it's quite nice to watch your friend discover a new place. I love that hike. I tend to avoid it because it can get crowded and because it's close and I think I just did it, but it has such amazing beauty. It was very crowded today because I-90 was closed and people were looking for an alternative place to enjoy. I'm glad I went up yesterday to play in the snow!

We got a break in the rain today; there was actual sun! Katie and I stood looking a the Lower Falls talking about the process of erosion. We could trace several different paths the river had worn through the rock. What a fun thing to explore together. We continued up the Upper Falls and I realized I'd never taken a picture there. I quite like the Upper Falls, there is something unruly about it. We turned to head back down the trail but I caught site of the light and moss on the trees and I had to get one more picture. It's a good thing Katie is patient (waiting through various camera struggles). I'm pleased with the result though.
