I moved to Snoqualmie Washington in late 2020. I must say that it is one of the most beautiful places I have lived. Here you can find inspiring scenery around every corner. The views here inspire me to develop my photography while appreciating this land. I am often humbled and thankful after every adventure.

Mount Si is one of the most visible Mountains around Snoqualmie and North Bend. Ever since I arrived here at Snoqualmie, I have been looking for a great perspective to photography this humbling giant. Driving around looking for places to photograph Si, I thought I saw its reflection on a lake. So I came back around and saw it again. The image I wanted was within reach. For months I drove by and could not figure out the best location to photography it. One day I decided the sky looked great this might be it. It was around 7:30 pm. The sun was not going to set until 8:30 - 9:00 pm. So I grabbed my gear and ran out of the house. I found this little cozy spot by the Old Mill Pond. Everything felt right, I hope that you can feel the reverence I felt while photographing this serene location.

I often like to learn and study the places I photograph. Here are is some of what I learned about this remarkable place.

Local Legend: Mount Si figures prominently in a Prometheus story from the Snoqualmie tribe. According to the story, it is the dead body of the moon, Snoqualm. Snoqualm ordered that a rope of cedar bark be stretched between the earth and the sky. But Fox and Blue Jay went up the rope and stole the sun from Snoqualm. Snoqualm chased them down the cedar rope, but it broke and he fell to his death. Fox then let the sun free in the sky and gave fire to the people. A face like Snoqualm's is visible on the rocks near the summit.

Mount Si and neighboring mountain Little Si were named after local homesteader Josiah "Uncle Si" Merritt. The mountain became nationally familiar in the early 1990s with the t.v. series Twin Peaks, which was filmed in North Bend.
