With catastrophic events like the Oso landslide, often one still and one video photographer are picked as the “pool” to collect image for everyone else. Today Lindsey Wasson from the Seattle Times and I were picked. We rode up past the checkpoints with Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary until we came to the point where highway 530 ended and the mud began.
SNOQUALMIE, Wash. - Now that the sun is back out and spring is right around the corner, it's time to get off the couch and get outdoors.
Snoqualmie Falls underwent a major renovation late last year. The covered gazebo is gone, replaced with three minimalist viewing platforms. The trail has also been revamped, it's a little longer than a mile now with a steep climb back up.
The new lower viewing area has the most dramatic face lift of the bunch. There is a parking lot and bathrooms for folks who can't make the hike. The original boardwalk to the base of the falls ended with a scramble down wet boulders. Those days are over. The new boardwalk is safer, but you can't get as close as you once could.
If you've never been, go! If you've not been in a while, the renovations make it well worth the drive.
Snoqualmie Falls is located about a half hour east of Seattle on I-90.
The lower viewing area is just around the corner.
Have a great weekend!
Blizzard conditions up on Snoqualmie Pass didn't scare folks off, while many were just trying to get to the opposite side of the state, the ski parks were full of people taking advantage of a late season.
When Tripp the pit bull escaped his back yard last July, Kim Eastman got in her car to try and find him. She had no idea how long the search would take, and how far it would take them. Both Kim and her daughter Angel call Tripp an "escape artist" who was picked up by strangers and eventually taken to Butte, Montana.
For the past seven months Kim and Angel have posted his picture on Facebook and with lost pet organizations. They followed up on lots of tips and false leads, but earlier this month they got the call they were waiting for; Tripp was coming home.
After a 600 mile long cab ride from Dog Gone Taxi, they were finally a family again.
After an amazing season, a dominating win in New Jersey, and the biggest parade this town has ever seen, the Seattle Seahawks brought the Lombardi Trophy to it's new home at Century Link Field. Here are just some of the highlights the ceremony today.

Here are just some of the sights and sounds as the 12th man arrived at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
A spontaneous celebration of the 12th Man by the 12th Man on Super Bowl Boulevard was shamefully interrupted by a shameless Broncos fan. Will this disgraceful display be the bulletin board material the Seahawks need to push them over the top on Sunday? We will see...
The 12th man flag that's flown atop the Space Needle since 2005 has made its way to New York City. It traveled through Manhattan and made a stop at Yankee Stadium before it will eventually be given to the Seahawks. Sean Marshall is the PR manager for the Space Needle and the caretaker of the flag. He says they've gotten signatures from as many folks as they can, helping to spread the spirit of the 12th man throughout the Big Apple.
At today's Super Bowl Media Day there were plenty of 12s showing their support for the Hawks. While many had made the trip from the northwest, we found quite a few local Seahawk fans who were excited to have their favorite team come to their hometown.
Jon Humbert and I took a walk through Times Square tonight as preparations are made to transform Broadway into "Super Bowl Boulevard". We'll have much more everyday this week. Stay tuned!
It took only a few moments after last night's game ended for the fans to pour out of Century Link field. The excitement was at serious Super Bowl levels. Here is just some of the insanity we saw, complete with a face painted Mark Miller. Enjoy!
Everyone steps it up for the playoffs, that includes the chefs at Century Link Field. Executive Chef Seis Kamimura came up with a new monster burger that's new just for the post season. It's named 'The Beast', in homage to Beast Mode himself, Marshawn Lynch.
Here is the lineup: First, a bun slathered with aioli, then lettuce, onion, tomato, onion rings, ham, bacon, and finally two patties covered in cheese.
The platter also comes with a pile of fries and of course, a side of Skittles.
The Beast Burger will be available in four locations. The Gridiron Grills on the main level and the upper level, as well as both 12th Man Grills on the club level.
The burger is estimated to contain 1700 calories, and it'll set you back $15, but who's counting.
Cody Nelson and Nicole Turner never wanted a big wedding.
The couple met playing flag football in Seattle and have been Seahawks season-ticket holders for the past four years.
Their friends gather together to tailgate before games, so they thought it would be the perfect time to surprise them and get married. Family traveled from three states to witness the nuptials. Their vows ended, as they should, with a "Go Hawks!"
They celebrated their first Seahawks win Sunday as 'fan' and wife.
