Snoqualmie Falls, one of Washington’s most popular scenic attractions, located about 30 miles East of Seattle. The falls is best known for its appearance in the cult TV Series Twin Peaks. The falls is 268 feet tall and houses two power plants operated by Puget Sound Energy, one plant is embedded in the rock and located 270 feet below the surface, the world’s first underground power plant. The building overlooking the falls is the Historic Salish Lodge and Spa, built in 1919. This was a 9 shot panorama with the 24mm TSE Lens.

A traditional burial site, to the Snoqualmie people, the falls are “the place where First Woman and First Man were created by Moon the Transformer” and “where prayers were carried up to the Creator by great mists that rise from the powerful flow. The mists rising from the base of the waterfall are said to serve to connect Heaven and Earth.-Wiki
