Looking down on downtown Seattle from the Space Needle! You can see the mountains in the distance and the Space Needle’s reflection in the glass!
The line seems long but moves quickly and has interesting history of the Space Needle along the way. I would recommend a visit to the top for any Seattle tourist! More info here.
One of my favorite things to look for when traveling are geological survey markers. Survey markers are objects placed to mark key survey points on the surface of the Earth.
I get a thrill seeing one on a remote mountain top, imagining the survey crew who hiked in there and placed it.
Here are some pictures I’ve collected along the way:
Pine Mountain, Georgia (note the triangle indicating this mark is used for triangulation)
El Malpais National Monument, New Mexico
Charleston, South Carolina
Cadillac Mountain, Maine
