Snoqualmie Point Park
On the way to look for our next hike, we had a happy accident. We had heard great things about Rattlesnake Ledge and so we put it into our phones and took off. We arrived at the destination and were a bit confused. Things didn’t seem quite right. We finally decided to ask someone and found out our phone had taken us to the wrong side of the mountain. We would have needed to hike 10 miles inland before getting to the area we were looking for. However, we did find Snoqualmie Point Park right next to us, on the wrong side of the mountain.
This area was gorgeous. A nice picnic area covered in elaborately carved wood, bathrooms close by and some walking paths near a variety of flowers. While sitting and eating you can watch all sorts of birds of prey soaring through the air and hunting. We saw wild bunnies too. And thankfully, in our viewing we never saw a bird and bunny meet. I would not have enjoyed the bloodshed on our family picnic.
There was hardly anybody there and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. It felt out in nature even though there was a parking area nearby. We enjoyed a picnic lunch watching the birds and rabbits. The sun was shining; the wind was blowing. It was a picturesque area to sit and relax.
If you want a relaxing area to pack a lunch and hang out at I would recommend Snoqualmie Point Park.
Keep trekking to the next blog to find more hikes from the trip.
I love spending time with my family doing all the wonderful activities in the Inland Northwest.
