Snoqualmie Falls and Mount Rainier National Park

View USA West Coast on divatmotoros's travel map.

After Halloween we drove on towards Mount Rainier National Park and enroute we have stopped at Snoqualmie Falls.


Later the day we have arrived to a small Ukrainian-run restaurant and lodge near Mt Rainier which was called Paradise Village. After a good night rest in their parking spot booked via Harvest Hosts we started our drive up into the mountain. At the entrance we were turned back to first get snowchains for our car which is mandatory from the 1st of November till May.

Luckily many places nearby offer chains for rent, a fee of 20 dollars for safety seems fine. We returned to the park entrance and drove about 30 minutes to the visitor center and we time travelled again: this time from autumn to winter. As we ascended it started to snow and it was snowy all around. Although it was foggy and cloudy the trees and the view was still beautiful.


After experiencing deep snow at the visitor center we turned back and stopped at Narada Falls. From the parking spot it is hard to see anything as it is at the top of the falls. But after descending about 200 meters on the icy and snowy short trail the majesty of the fall became imminent.
