Wallace Falls State Park is a real treat. At just over an hour from Seattle, it’s about as far from the city as is Snoqualmie Falls. But it’s prettier. The hike requires a touch of work. At about 2 miles and 400 feet of elevation, you finally reach the best view of the falls, the middle viewpoint, where the final two photos are taken from. The real glory of this hike is that it is best done on a wet day. The lush, old growth forest is well kept, despite the growing number of visitors to the park and glows green on a dark, rainy day. Green is my favorite color, so this is one of my favorite hikes. Go early to avoid the crowds that inevitably show up in the PNW hiking months.
All photos taken with a Hoya ND X400 (10-stop) filter for long exposure times.
