This week we have been taking a little fun family vacation to Seattle. Sure is nice to get away to the great Northwest. Snow, sunshine, Alaskan turkey, great coffee, Twin Peaks waterfalls, and honey of course...
On our way home from sledding we stopped at the water falls where Twin Peaks was filmed back in the early 90's. David Lynch obviously saw the beauty of Snoqualmie Falls, with a higher drop than Niagara, and today was equally as cold as it is high, to use as the backdrop for his popular television series. There is a generator station at the top of the falls, although I don't remember it in the opening credits for the show. After a very brisk visit to the falls we went to their little shop for a warm cup of anything. Surprisingly the shop had a honey display, go figure... I was really impressed with the presentation of both the honey jars and the overall set-up. The jars were just those old rustic honey pot style, although I wasn't aware they were called that until I visited Moon Valley Organic's web site. Moon Valley did a great job of dressing up their honey by dipping the lids of those rustic honey pot jars in wax and making a small letter-pressed label hang tag. To set the whole display off they presented the honey nicely stacked with an eletric light underneath to accent the amber color of the honey. It definitely hooked me - I bought a couple honey sticks, I know - big whup, but I also got a small jar of their wild flower variety. Hey, that's saying a lot from a guy that has no shortage of personal honey around. I'm sure I'll never open the jar because it's so nicely done. Great job Moon Valley!
So beautiful - so cold
So warm - so yummy
