Snoqualmie Falls over the day

Snoqualmie Falls is an amazing place. Due to the hydro power station built here in 1898/1899 the area around the falls is well developed and easy to get to. What really struck me was how the mood of the falls changes over the course of the day. The panorama above was taken in sunshine in late afternoon while the rather misty photo below was taken at shortly after 7am in the morning.

The hike to the bottom of the falls is short, but steep. Again, a very different mood being in the canyon vs. being on the rim.

The trails are boardwalks, paved, or gravel and well-maintained. North-West feeling.

The evening view from the hotel terrace is very pretty, too. The small waterfall on the right is spillover from the water basin at the hydro power station gate house, but it fits well into the scene.
