Dear Myrtle - A Photographic Survey Just For You

The sun has been shining here in Preston, Washington, for two days in a row. A very rare occurrence this year. So I jumped in my car and continued my Photographic Survey of Preston. But it was so beautiful I drove a little further down the road and took some pictures just for Dear Myrtle. The Rhodies are in bloom Myrt, and they are beautiful. Those pictured below are along the walkways at Snoqualmie Falls.

The Rhodies

Snoqualmie Falls is a 268 ft. waterfall on the Snoqualmie River between Fall City and Snoqualmie. Fall City is the next town over from my town of Preston. Snoqualmie Falls is one of our most popular scenic attractions and is known for its appearance in the television series Twin Peaks.

A Normal Year

With a record snowfall this year, record warm weather has brought more water to the falls than we have seen in years. It is spectacular! And I can't begin to describe the roar of the water as it drops over the edge. Deafening!

This Year!

Tons of Water (Gallons)
And No End In Sight

The Salish Lodge & Spa
Above The Falls

The Observation Deck
And A Rainbow

So Dear Myrtle, a little bit of home just for you. Washington misses you!

Believe it or not, this blog just came through TODAY 6/25/2008. THANK-YOU ever so much for these beautiful pics. I have especially been missing my trips through the area where I took my elderly parents in their wheelchair van. Even after Mom died, Dad continued to love visiting the area sometimes as frequently as once a week.

You have really brightened my day. This first Father's Day without Dad has been tough.

Love to you,
