Today I visited the Snoqualmie Falls in addition to the scenic view of the waterfall situated below "One Eyed Jack's" of Twin Peaks fame, I was pleased to learn about the hydroelectric power plant. When standing at the bottom of the penstocks looking up and even when looking at Plant 2 sitting in the river water, I couldn't help but wonder at the scale of the work that must have taken place to make this possible. With failing infrastructure all over the United States, I found inspiration in a project that is as scenic as it is functional.
