Carnation

 

General

Carnation is a nice town

Carnation is located on the join of the Tolt river and the Snoqualmie River .  It's about 65 miles north of Mount Rainier.

There's a large park that spans both sides of the Snoqualmie River called Tolt MacDonald Park.  A suspension foot bridge spans the river.

The town of Carnation was originally called Tolt but was renamed to Carnation to honor Carnation Milk that originates in the town.

In 2012, the town turned 100 years old (you can see me in the picture).
