Mt. St. Helens. After 40 years tree growth has continued along with planting hundreds of new trees.

Seattle Space Needle. 600 feet with two decks, one rotating. Built in 1962. As a senior, I paid $52 vs $65.

Level 1 Inside. Includes a short order cafe and bar. Several elevators get you to the top in 82 seconds.

Level 2 rotating deck with glass floor. Very interesting viewing Seattle as it rotated. A fine dining restaurant previously occupied this space. They said it was profitable but wanted more visitors to the site ($). I think they should have kept it.

Great shots of the Cascades!

Next time I recommend you drive out to the coast and check out the Olympic Rain Forest. Spectacular nature that you can't find anywhere else.

Also, while the Space Needle is iconic and fun, the Columbia Center viewing center has a much more elevated view (almost double), is 25% the price, and you don't have to wait in line. Both are fun, but just another option.
