Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region. The Cascades split the state and alter weather patterns. Moisture bearing winds coming from the west give generous amounts of precipitation to the western slopes of the mountains, with wintertime snow above about 3000 feet. This area has an average annual precipitation of 87 inches and an average wintertime snow depth of 87 inches.

Average maximum summer temperatures are in the mid to high 60s with a minimum average in the mid 40s. Because of the elevation and distance from the moderating oceans, winter temperatures are much colder than those in in the Seattle area, with minimum temperatures in the 20s and maximum temperatures in the 30s.

Location - Olallie State Park is located five miles southeast of North Bend along Interstate 90 in King County.

Report: Olallie park is so much fun! We played in the Snoqualmie River for a long time and then enjoyed the trail. There was a cool big uprooted tree along the way that the kids climbed all over. We then went over to Weeks Falls. It's little but nice. And easy! No hike involved so anyone can go!
