At The Great Northern

Twin Peaks fans will appreciate this: a little while ago, we took a little drive out to Kiana Lodge, otherwise known as the Great Northern Inn from Twin Peaks. Though the exterior of the hotel was portrayed from shots of the Salish Lodge in Snoqualmie (with the waterfall beside it in the opening credits), the interior scenes and the beach outside with the log where Laura Palmer's body was found, and where Pete would go to fish, were all filmed here at Kiana Lodge. It was perfectly strange with not a soul to be seen, except one native maintenance man in a hoodie who could've cared less about us wandering around the place.

This set of doors was portrayed as the main entry to The Great Northern

Inside The Great Northern. Recognize the wall paintings? This is the room where Leland exclaimed, "Somebody dance with me!"

And that concludes our little jaunt into Twin Peaks. Luckily, we didn't run into Bob. At least, I don't think so.
