The Beautiful and Historical City- Seattle

Seattle is about 100 miles south of the Canada-United States border. It situated on a narrow isthmus between Puget Sound and Lake Washington. This geography location make Seattle unique. Seattle is typical temperate marine climate. It is cool and wet in winter, warm and dry in summer and it rains a lot, so Seattle also known as 'Rain City'.  

The first Starbucks in the world, it still keep the original look. It located opposite the pike place market. One of the attractions in Seattle.  

Get the best Seattle view from Kerry Park on the south slope of Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, located at the corner of 2nd Avenue W. and W. Highland Drive.See the view of downtown Seattle, Elliott Bay, the West Seattle, Bainbridge Island, and Mount Rainier here. Too bad that i couldn't get the pictures of the Mount Rainier as it was cloudy.

Fremont, Troll under the bridge is located on N. 36th Street at Troll Avenue N., under the north end of the George Washington Memorial Bridge, known as Aurora bridge. 

"It all started in 1989 when our local Fremont Arts Council was approached about doing something more imaginative with the space under the Aurora bridge other than letting it turn into an urban grotto and tire dump. Encouraged by the prospect of support and funding, a national competition was organized to select the best ideas. Arts Council activists Barbara Luecke, Roger Wheeler, Peter Beavis, Peter Toms and Denise Fogelman juried the field down to five finalists who were then commissioned to create models that would be voted on by the community at the Fremont Fair.
The Troll created by a team led by sculptor Steve Badanes was voted the overwhelming favorite. A city matching grant was successful in funding the project. Thus, the Fremont Troll came to be. Made from rebar steel, wire and 2 tons of messy ferroconcrete, the Troll monument took about 7 weeks to complete." (source from-

The Space Needle (605 ft height) is a landmark of Seattle and also the Pacific Northwest. It is an observation tower and has an observation deck, gift shop with the rotating SkyCity restaurant. You get to see the downtown Seattle skyline, Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, Elliott Bay, and surrounding islands from the top of the Needle. 

My impression of Seattle is ..."This is the city i would like to stay if i could!". I was here in early autumn, the scenes was just so beautiful in every corner in Seattle.
