Seattle, Washington, from Columbia Tower Observation Deck

"I was on of the flooring crew in the building during construction, remember moving to the area during the worst storm in forty years. It was amazing standing in front of the curved area of glass with 60-70 Mph winds, remember as well as the wind would rush up the freight elevator shaft.

For a young guy from a small country town it was a real eye opener. Seattle has left me with many fantastic memories. Thank you for posting this picture, it brought back all those great moments."
