This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to stop and see Snoqualmie Falls. The falls are about 30 miles (48 km) east of Seattle, Washington. Over 1.5 million people visit every year and I think they all showed up along with me on Saturday. But it was worth the hassles of finding a parking space in the lot farthest from the falls and walking down to see them.
Some quick facts about Snoqualmie Falls:
Height of falls: 268 ft (82 m)
River: Snoqualmie River
Average Width: 100 ft (30 m)
Number of Drops: 1

The falls were showing the effects of the below-freezing temperatures we've had for the past couple of weeks. It was impressive seeing the icicles and layers of heavy frost and ice on the nearby walls.
You might think these pictures are in black and white, but they are not. It was just the color of the gray rocks and white ice and water.
