Snoq-WHAT?

So, I hope you all aren't getting sick of hearing our adventures in Seattle. We do something new everyday and it feels like I take more pictures than I know what to do with. The result? Lots of blogging for you all to enjoy! Yay!  The other day we went to a place called Snoqualmie Falls. It is about 20 miles away from where we live. It is a awesome water fall that is like a huge tourist attraction. According to Tim it is taller than Niagra. We hiked down to the falls and somehow Tim talked me into climbing over the board walk and hiking down to the shore with Brock. I was pretty nervous to let him carry Brock down the rocky edge, but I am glad we did because he loved the water. Once we let him in, he did not want to get out even though is was FREEZING cold.


We saw this tree on the hike down. We thought it was kind of interesting so we took a picture. Washington is so crazy. You can drive 20 feet off the freeway and all the sudden feel like you are in the rainforest. It's great.
Picture of me and Tim on the look-out over the falls.

This is where we hiked down to the water's edge. It was neat. I wish we had brought our suits because it was like 99 degrees and a lot of people were swimming. It was a fun trip and I also saw a bat! It landed right by my foot then flew right by my head. Gross! We took a little video of the falls because we felt that we couldn't catch all the beauty in photos alone.

That is beautiful. I'm glad to hear that you are enjoying the city so much. I have to admit that I'm a little jealous that you are able to take advantage of the city life. But at the same time I'm getting lots of good ideas for our next trip to Seattle.
