SEATTLE - City of Tilikum

After a layover here last year that was over too soon, I needed to get back. I love big cities, especially big Pacific Rim cities - but I LOVE Seattle. The Puget Sound area feels like its own separate world. The hills are serious, the plate tectonics are precarious, the coffee is warm, the grunge is real, and it smells like Christmas trees everywhere. Enjoy!

Nice pictures! I like the one looking down the street at Smith Tower, and also the one of the snow line in the forest!

So Seattle actually smells like Christmas trees?

Oh man... I love Seattle so much. I was just there and you already have made me want to go back! Looks like you spent a lot of time in West Seattle. Thanks for sharing!

Great photos. I was there for the first time since the early 70s in April. Loved it! Except the weather. Hated that.
