it's been raining almost daily since Halloween, and it gets dark at 4:30 or 5:00 in the afternoon now, so there's not much opportunity for good outdoor photos. anyway, because of the rain,the river is running higher than it's been in a while, and the falls looks more spectacular...

Nice shot squirl. Glad to see I'm not the only one in the northwest bitching about the weather. Just north of the border, it's been relentless. Beautiful picture of the falls. Quite impressive. Cheers...........thekman.

Thats very pretty..I was in that area this spring and had never heard of that waterfall...thats a bummer ,I would have liked to visit that one. Not that I did not see many in the NW but that looks to be one of the more magnificent ones.

squirl033,

Isn't this where the opening of "Twin Peaks" was filmed?

Hope they serve strong, black coffee and cherry pie in the
visitor's center.:G

Thats a very nice picture. I wish we had places like that around here to take pictures of. What camera did you use to take that?

took this one with an FZ20, handheld at f6.5 @ 1/15. biggest challenge was trying to keep the camera out of the blowing mist and rain.

Dick, i can't say if this is where the opening to Twin Peaks was filmed, since i've never seen the show, but i do know parts of it were filmed in the town of Snoqualmie, which is just a few miles from the falls. the "visitors center" here is called Salish Lodge, it's a very expensive B&B/restaurant overlooking the falls. i'd imagine you could get that coffee and pie there, but it'd cost a lot more than at one of the mom-n-pop cafes in town... :G

That's an impressive waterfall. Do you have any idea how big a drop that is?
