Carnation is a nice town
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).
Of course the big thing Carnation is known for is Carnation Milk that is sold worldwide.
The official Carnation city site is here.
The best trail through Carnation is the Snoqualmie Trail. It is a disused railroad track.
The trail has nice bridges such as over the Tokul river.
You can walk along the trail from Carnation to the Snoqualmie Falls.
The are also lots of other great parks in Carnation. They're listed here .
The walking trails are shown here.
If it gets too hot in the park, the fire brigade is always on hand to cool people down.
Remlinger operates a theme park in Carnation where you can do things such as buy locally grown produce and ride on their steam train.

Sometimes I get cool planes using my plot as a turning point, particularly during Seafair weekend.
My plot is in an area of 20+ acre plots. We all contribute to the neighborhood association who's main role is to maintain the roads.
