Dispatches from a dusty desert outpost called Utah.

The Owls Are Not What They Seem

On a recent trip to the PNW with Mike, we made it a point to drive a little further north and west than was actually needed in order to pay a visit to the North Bend/Fall City/Snoqualmie-area of Washington. We are both big David Lynch fans, and this is the area that serves as the setting for many of the iconic locations from arguably his greatest work, Twin Peaks. I found it as magical and moody as one might hope. Here are some pictures of what we found...


The location of the "Welcome to Twin Peaks" sign. Sadly, we can't have nice things and it has been removed.

"There are many stories in Twin Peaks..."


The bridge where they find Ronette Pulaski after her unfortunate night with folks from the Black Lodge.

"Sometimes we want to hide from ourselves — we do not want to be us — it is too difficult to be us."


The Roadhouse in Fall City. Sadly, there was no music in the air, or Black Yukon Sucker Punches on the bar menu.

"I have no idea where this will lead us. But I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange."


Snoqualmie Falls and the "Great Northern Hotel."

"We are like the dreamer who dreams and then lives inside the dream."


The Double R Diner, home of a damn fine cup of coffee and cherry pie that is worth the stop (Diane).

"Fellas, don't drink that coffee! You'd never guess. There was a fish in the percolator!"


Jack Rabbit's Palace, which featured zero transdimensional access points (at least during our visit).

"I believe the Black Lodge is the source of what you've traditionally referred to here as the evil in the woods."
