Beautiful pictures, as always! Visited last summer, and we're coming again this summer (this time for a month). We're hoping to move to the area soon.

I'd love to see some pictures of the grey and misty Seattle!?!

Good job as always on a lot of your photos.

Some of the most amazing natural landscapes and urban landscapes I have seen in the world are in the Pacific Northwest in person and in pictures. (Seattle area, Vancouver, Canada area, North Cascades National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park, Hoh Rain Forest, Mount Baker area, Lake Chelan area, as well as other spots).

In August 2009, I went on a 10 day trip to Seattle, Washington Bellingham, Washington Vancouver Canada, Lions Bay in Canada, North Shore mountains in Canada, Capilano Suspension Bridge in the North Shore mountains, North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake Recreational area, Olympia, Washington, Portland, Oregon, Cannon Beach, Oregon, and Mount Hood, Oregon and it was easily one of the best trips I had in my life out of many trips I had. It really opened up my mind and perception and inspired me tremendously. No other trip I ever went on in my life inspired me as positively/intellectually/creatively as that trip and I have been to 20 states and 8 countries. Although, I do find many places in the world to offer many postives, and have charm. So while I love the Northwest and its my favorite region in the world Ive been to, I respect and love other locations as well in the world. So my appreciation for this place doesnt reach arrogance.

This summer I plan to go to Hurricane Ridge, Olympic Hot springs near Hurricane ridge, Glacier Peak area in the Cascades, the area of Olympic national park near Brinnon/Hoodsport, Mount Baker area again, Mount Rainier National park again, and Vancouver, Canada. Im going to try to do all of this in day trips(all of these trips are 4 hours or less one way so its possible) and not stay at hotels to save money.

The urban and natural landscapes I have seen of the Pacific Northwest (especially pictures I have seen from your picture threads) inspired my city-data name

Im shocked when I see people say such negative about this region, even when it is cloudy and rainy over here. I think I told you that in a message I sent to you recently and just get confused when I see some people have such negative opinions about this region. Im sure you are too. You didnt respond to the message yet though.

Part of it is that you're looking at pictures of downtown and Pike Place - the two biggest tourist attractions in the city. I shopped at the market this weekend, and yes, fatties abounded. Most were wearing logos from sports teams in other cities.
