Let The River Flow, Part 2

The three forks all converge in the town of Snoqualmie, at the Snoqualmie Falls. Snoqualmie Falls plunges 268 ft, making it about 100 ft taller than Niagara Falls (but a lot less wide). It is one of Washington's most popular attractions, but is perhaps best known internationally for its appearance in the cult television series Twin Peaks. There's a great observation deck where I took the second picture from, and there is a trail that you can take to get down to the bottom of the falls. For the less adventurous, there's a lodge that houses an excellent (and pricey) hotel and spa.

Soon it was time for me to return home, where I found one of our cats taking advantage of my absence and drinking from my water cup. Good thing I saw him do this!

The cat could have created a dining room version of Snoqualmie Falls! -I haven't been to the falls but man that looks nice. I'm going to have to get up there and take a look one of these days. -Ah, "Twin Peaks", I loved that show and boy was I ticked when they cancelled it! If you liked Twin Peaks, a movie called "Blue Velvet" was made by the same director I believe. Caution, don't let kids watch it!

I have often wondered how many food or drink items left unattended our cats have gotten into and then we also partake of the same. Ugh!

My guess is kitty got into the Sriracha first and went 'hoo boy!' So, technically, its yer own fault :)

Thanks guys for the comments!

Kano - if you ever get out this way, let me know!

Doug - as soon as I wrote this, I was thinking the same as you. I started feeling not so well.

Chris - I see you are a man that appreciates a good hot sauce!

Cats have been known to brush their teeth with your toothbrush too..
