Default Seattle from the sky. Great View from the Space Needle.

So, on friday, it was a RARE partly sunny winter day in Seattle. My mother was in town. Her company (Raytheon) had put her in an Executive Suite at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Seattle, literally a few blocks from the space needle. She came to the base and got us in her Buick Lucerne rental (Eww), and drove us to the hotel, where we spent presidents day weekend in the lap of luxury. It was quite fun. We paid our share, because we wanted to make sure when she filed her expense report, she didnt get our expenses and hers mixed up. Cost about $400 on our end, but not bad for 4 days of fun!

Here are the pix of Seattle from the sky! I have high-res images, PM me if interested, otherwise the resized ones from my 12.5mp point and shoot will have to do!

Space needle from 1 block away:




^up close with Valet Parking. We walked, it was only 6 blocks...if that.





Now, I (and my acrophobia...or fear of heights), couldn't bring myself to take pix in the elevator on the way up. it was completely made of glass and all I could do was hold on to the railing and hope I didn't die. I did not, and I emerged at the top just fine. Thankfully.


^Alki Beach and West Seattle, Olympic Mountains in the background.




^facing North, the mountains of Beautiful, British Columbia, Canada.


^Due East, Downtown Seattle, best city ever.


^and facing due South, the Port of Seattle, Piers, Seattle aquarium, Boeing's Museum of Flight, the Alaskan Way Viaduct.


^a random direction (cant remember).

We each purchased a City Pass, and for $59.95 a person got into up to 6 of the Major attractions (avg admission was $20 per person, so with three people, you could spend $60 in one location, just on admissions). So, for the $180 for 3 city passes, we saved at least $100 in admissions fees. We went to the Boeing Museum of Flight. They have the Boeing 707 that was Air Force One there, as well as Concorde, and one of the few surviving SR-71 Blackbird's on display. About the only thing the city has to offer tourism-wise that we did not do, was the Aquarium, and thats because it was PACKED. Pike Place Market was fun as well, if not a little bit scare. Seattle is a very...well..."progressive" town.

The space needle is awesome dude, definitely something people should see once in their life. I see your stationed at Ft. Lewis, right on man. If you get a chance, go to north bend and go hiking. I've been big into it since I first did Mt. Si last year. Thats a great one to start with. If you think the view at 600 feet is nice, try 4400 feet. It's phenomenal. Look at my thread "hike tomorrow", I went up Mailbox peak during a snow storm. Awesome view, though at the top we were in the clouds lol. I'm hopin we don't get that 6" of snow they're freaking out about.

Those are some great pics, thanks for posting them. I'm assuming they would not allow pictures in the Boeing musuem ? Would have loved to have seen some pics of those planes as well. Reps to Ya.

i was stationed across the Bay for about 6 months, little town of Bremerton, Wa

never went anywhere much, i spent my time in some coffee shops
Seattle was full of crazys back in the mid 1960s
I also went to a specialized school up at Whidby Island Wa. now that was some pretty country, i never even wanted to leave the base, Big a**ed planes on that base!!
