The Space Needle

The Space Needle is an observation tower in Seattle, Washington, a landmark of the Pacific Northwest, and an icon of Seattle. It was built in the Seattle Center for the 1962 World's Fair, which drew over 2.3 million visitors, when nearly 20,000 people a day used its elevators.[7]

Once the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River,[7] it is 605 ft (184 m) high, 138 ft (42 m) wide, and weighs 9,550 short tons (8,660 tonnes). It is built to withstand winds of up to 200 miles per hour (89 m/s; 320 km/h) and earthquakes of up to 9.1 magnitude,[8] as strong as the 1700 Cascadia earthquake. It also has 25 lightning rods.[9]

The Space Needle has an observation deck at 520 ft (160 m) and the rotating SkyCity restaurant at 500 ft (150 m).[7] The downtown Seattle skyline, as well as the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, Elliott Bay and surrounding islands can be viewed from the top of the Needle. Photographs of the Seattle skyline often show the Space Needle prominently, above skyscrapers and Mount Rainier.[citation needed]

Visitors can reach the top of the Space Needle by elevators that travel at 10 miles per hour (4.5 m/s; 16 km/h). The trip takes 41 seconds. On windy days, the elevators slow to 5 miles per hour (2.2 m/s; 8.0 km/h). On April 19, 1999, the city's Landmarks Preservation Board designated it a historic landmark.[7][10]

In September 2017, the restaurant was temporarily closed as part of a US$100 million renovation. The renovation includes the installation of a new rotation motor and see-through glass floors in the restaurant, as well as the replacement of the observation deck's wire enclosure with glass panels. The observation deck will remain open for the duration of the project.[11] Completion of the project is expected for the first week of July 2018.

Nisqually nature preserve

There are two huge, white barns located on Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. Seeing such grand twin barns standing side by side on a wildlife preserve with wetlands all around might seem a curious thing, but before Nisqually Wildlife Refuge came into existence, the land used to be a farm. The barns were dairy barns that were built back in 1934, and they stand as reminders of the fascinating history of the land.

The wetlands where the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge is located used to be a farm called the Brown Farm. It became farmland back in 1904 after Alson Lennon Brown purchased and drained 1,500 acres of salt marsh between the Nisqually River and McAllister Creek and built four miles of dikes to keep the water out.

Hey, I was just commenting on a photo I opend out of my favourites yesterday and then I got an error while submitting the comment. Did you delete the photo? It was the one with the sunset behind the mountains. I can't find it anymore, but it was really a beautiful photo.

The sun was already behind the mountains and you could just see the orange and red sky, it was perfectly located at the lowest part of the mountain, nearly in the centre of the photo. I was just wondering why it's gone :)
