Snoqualmie Falls, just off I-90 thirty miles east of Seattle, is one of the most popular tourist stops—and probably the most famous waterfall—in all of Washington State. Some 1.5 million visitors a year check out the landmark cascade as it falls off a wide ledge just below the stately Salish Lodge and plunges 268 feet into a large punchbowl gorge below. Beyond scenic views, Snoqualmie Falls also produces 54 megawatts of electricity for Seattle and environs, making it one of the most practical tourist attractions around.
