Top Ten Snoqualmie Valley Photos of 2020 (According to Instagram)

The end of the year is all about top ten lists. I would do “Living Snoqualmie’s Top 10 Stories of 2020,” but they were all Covid related and who needs more of that? So, in addition to our “Sum Up 2020 in a Photo” contest, we’re trying something new.

As many readers know, the active Living Snoqualmie Instagram page shares many photos of the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley… most of them are from local photographers, we take a few, and some are from stories on the page.

At the end of this year, we tracked the total “likes” of all photos shared on Instagram – as compiled within their insights – to rank the top 10 photos.

We hope people will continue to share photos with us in 2021 on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook– message them to any of our social media platforms or email
