|76-story Columbia Center|
Seattle, WA, USA
The 2nd tallest building on the West Coast has remodeled its observation area and now calls it Sky View. It's on the 73rd floor of the 76-story Columbia Center in downtown Seattle. John went up to take a look on Wednesday, July 17, 2013, and here are a few snaps.

CenturyLink Field is home to NFL Seahawks.
In lower right -- highrise condos/apts under construction
may be just
what a football fan is looking for.
|The 38-story Smith Tower.|
Built in 1914 and tallest building on West Coast
until Space Needle replaced it in 1962.
Now we look down on it from 73.
Will visit again on a clear day to see how Mt. Rainier looks.
Snaps this week at Volunteer Park Dahlia Garden ...

This week started with a really warm, clear day on Monday. During the middle of the week, some spots had a drop of rain, and clouds provided some cooler temps. Friday looking like another mostly sunny, warm day. Pretty typical weather for mid-summer in Seattle.
