Snoqualmie Falls

My tribute to David Lynch's wonderfully quirky, disturbing and mysterious TV show, Twin Peaks.

 

Both Snoqualmie Falls and The Salish Lodge (The Great Northern Lodge in the show), located between the towns of Snoqualmie, WA and Fall City, WA, are featured in David Lynch's famous television show Twin Peaks.

 

Snoqualimie is the Salish word for moon. For the Snoqualmie People, who have lived for centuries in the Snoqualmie Valley in western Washington, Snoqualmie Falls is central to their culture, beliefs, and spirituality. A traditional burial site, to the Snoqualmie, 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.
