I discovered Seattle on a road trip from San Francisco to Connecticut ... the trip was 10,000 miles over the course of two months, so Sea Town really wasn't that far out of the way. Part of the trip was a slow, meandering line up the Cascade range, and while I'd been in Washington a few times, Seattle was one of the last big cities in the US I hadn't been to at the time.
Not too long later, I moved up here. That was a few years ago, and I still love the place, although I can see myself moving on before too long. Wander lust.
Anyway, I thought people might enjoy a photo of my fair city:
