Beating the Heat at Snoqualmie Falls

Last night we took an impromptu trip up to Snoqualmie Falls to have a picnic and do some exploring. Our house was just getting a little unbearable with the lack of airflow and the high temperatures so I decided it would be a nice break to hit the road and head up to higher elevation. We ended up falling in love with the city of Snoqualmie and decided to drive around some of the neighborhoods to become more familiar with the town. It was a great stray from the ordinary date night!

This was an impromptu picnic and I didn't want to cook anything so we just had some mini sandwiches and pasta salad from the day before, and of course wine!

Jackson was so well behaved. He sat or laid next to us the entire time we were eating.

Snoqualmie Falls - the waterfall was a lot more powerful than most of the photos depict it looking. I guess with the high temperatures and the mountain snow melting it was a very full river.

We loved our surroundings. It's so nice to get out of the city once in a while and be in the mountains.
