Franklin Falls

Today we headed for the Iron Horse trail and the Snoqualmie Tunnel for a hike. The tunnel is 2.3 miles in the dark, and was the main reason we were going. Unfortunately, we found out the tunnel was closed in January because of falling debris. They’re still waiting for funding to complete the repairs. So, we drove back across the summit and went to Franklin Falls instead. This turned out to be a great hike for a 2 year old. Avery hiked the full mile to the falls over roots, rocks, and logs. The falls themselves were crowded, and the sense of wilderness was spoiled by I-90 which hums in the background. After a ride down the trail in the backpack, Avery fell asleep within ten minutes of getting in the car.
