Then, What Now

Steps Towards the Falls by Tommia Wright

The fun thing about reviewing old photos is finding images of things no longer there. Case in point, one of the joys of the original walk from the top to the bottom of Snoqualmie Falls was this gated section by the power plant. Sure, the pathway could be filled with water and the wooden steps wobbled, but it was a fun path nonetheless.

Alas, this was taken down long ago and replaced with a new, easily accessible boardwalk, which is nice – plenty of areas to stop and enjoy the river or sit down and take a break. Every now and then, permission is given to unlock the gate to climb to the riverbank and walk towards the base of the falls.

What images of items long gone have you captured or hope to capture before they disappear?

    I didn’t realize it was gone. I didn’t capture it, but all the photos of the home where I grew up capture a memory of something that is gone. Tweeted
