I hate to nitpick but that is actually Mt. Ranier

Mt St Helens blew off its peak about 30 years ago. Plus it was never visible from Seattle I believe.

Thanks once again thanks to all for participating!

To keep it alive I'm gonna break my own rule slightly and post another 10 pics of my own city - this time the more modern parts...

So everyone else who feels like are very welcome to post a new set of their pics if they feel like it

Modern Copenhagen:

Ottawa, Canada:

The Byward Market - plenty of shops to browse in the day, plenty of places to drink at night


The dead of winter - we got 54cm (22in.) of snow in this storm. Note the snowbank in the foreground that's taller than the parking meter, and almost obliterating the newspaper box


Looking north on Sussex Drive


The National Gallery


Parliament Hill, from the Ottawa River


The Locks of the Rideau Canal, built in the 1830's, connecting Ottawa to Kingston, 120km to the south on Lake Ontario - originally built to defend against an attack by the Americans, it's not used by pleasure boaters.


Looking north on the Rideau Canal, with the Chateau Laurier in the distance


Elgin Street


The Chateau Laurier during a snowstorm


Tin House Court, in the Byward Market

^Great shots of Ottawa. Its strongest assets are certainly its architecture and street level environment. I feel like I don't get to see enough of that. It seems people are more quick to post pictures of Ottawa's less impressive skyline when they should be showcasing its real strengths.
