The Emerald City from Mount Baker Ridge Viewpoint
When they say "The Emerald City" ... This is what they're talking about.
It's not unusual to get a nice break in the weather in February. Yesterday was one of those nice days and I decided to see how the city looked from the relatively unknown Mt Baker Ridge Viewpoint. Our view here is looking to the west-northwest. City center is a little over 2 miles distant and the Olympic Mountains a little over 40 miles. The perspective from this location gives some interesting effects such as the Space Needle (near right edge) looking almost at ground level. Actually, it's 605 feet in height.
Thank you for stopping by John's Island!
