One of the luxuries of living in Seattle – Bellevue metro area, there are ample hikes and natural beauties to explore within an hours drive. I returned home from Vegas this past weekend and was treated to the shot above. Snoqualmie Falls is a great location to take a short evening hike through the forest down towards the base of the Falls. From above, there are several scenic lookouts for visitors to take photographs and take in the sights and sounds. Sights like these that make the cost of living in Washington state worth while. I definitely recommend this hike for all, but especially for families who are looking for a short adventure.
