Sunday at Snoqualmie Falls

We haven't dropped by Snoqualmie Falls since our children weren't much older than our grandchildren are now and we stopped for a memorable breakfast at Snoqualmie Falls Lodge, remodeled and known since 1986 as Salish Lodge. Has this area developed from rural to suburban, as we drove by blocks of new housing on our way to the Falls from the I-5 exit! With the rain holding off, it turned out to be a great day for Avery, Lily, Peyton and their dad to take us for a steep one-mile walk right down to the bottom.

Brian lost a gentleman's bet with Dave, who claimed correctly that Snoqualmie Falls are 1.5 times as high as Niagara Falls. Quite an impressive sight, and almost as impressive to see two three-year-olds walk all the way down and almost all the way back up. For our six-year-old gymnast Avery, it was a trail to scamper up and down and cover, well, 1.5 times as much ground as the rest of us.

After the Falls, we drove into the town and enjoyed the Mexican food at La Fogata, a place we'd return to anytime we're in the neighborhood.
