We went to Franklin first. It was fun to hear them "ooh" and "aah" at its beauty. I love taking people to waterfalls, particularly when they've never seen one before.
The long drive was worth it for these smiles!
We enjoyed some pretty views and clear skies along the drive.
Thanks to some internet research I learned that the main trail to Twin Falls was closed due to a major washout. Fortunately the waterfalls were still accessible, but the trail getting there is considerably less pleasant. You have to hike down first and then hike up to get back, and the pathways are more narrow and less well maintained. Plus there were confusing signs that would have you believe you have to jump over the ravine to get to the trail. You start on a trail then have to walk on an old logging road for 1/3rd of a mile before you find the trail again.
Pretty shots of the upper falls.
And last was beautiful Snoqualmie Falls. I didn't even bother taking my camera out here since there was so much mist that I couldn't imagine I'd get a good picture. Plus I'd seen it recently with Amy and had already taken many beautiful pictures of it with even more flow coming off of it, so I didn't think it was worth risking water damage to Oscar's phone just to get a few pictures. The girls took these pictures.
It was a crazy fun day with some crazy fun girls!
