Blue water, not yellow brick, surrounds the Emerald City of Seattle. Cupped between the jagged Olympic Mountains to the west and the volcanic peaks of the Cascade Range to the east, the city sits on a narrow strip of land between Puget Sound and 18-mile-long Lake Washington.

Frequent rains and mists keep the surroundings cleaner and greener than most other cities of similar size.
