City of Seattle.. and Beyond..

The City of Seattle is located in the State of Washington.. 113 miles south of the US/Canadian border. With a Population of 540,500.. it is not one of Americas biggest cities, but certainly one of the prettiest.

Seattle has grown from a little settlement on Elliot Bay, to a lovely, sophisticated city, with beautiful views, and an enormous amount of attractions, and recreational possibilities. The diverse landscape, and antiquated charm of Seattle, makes it a wonderful place to visit. The many attractions will keep the whole family satisfied, and so many beautiful places to visit, many, just outside the city. One would need a lot more than a week, to really appreciate all that Seattle has to offer.

The Stillaguamish River

The Stillaguamish river, known as the Stilly, by the locals, is located in the Mount Baker National Forest.. just a few miles Northeast of Seattle.. via Arlington.
Found nestled among the peaks of several low mountains, and a couple of higher peaks of 5,000 plus footers.
The Stilly is known for good fishing, with Salmon, Trout, and Steelhead, during the summer and winter runs. Most popular, is fly fishing.

The beauty of this region is just beyond imagination.. clear white waters, surrounded by mountains, lush green forests, and as seen in this photo.. a fresh layer of snow, just to add to the already beautiful scenery. (Enlarge the photo, for a better view)
