Best View of Someplace Other Than Downtown

Red Square, UW Campus

Picture a clear, sunny day in Seattle. You're standing in the sea of bricks known as Red Square in the heart of the University of Washington campus. While in the shadow of stately Suzzallo Library, cast your gaze southeast through the corridor of ivy-veiled buildings. Behold the majestic splendor. (Seriously. Behold it.) Drumheller Fountain spews a jet of water 100 feet into the air, sending a cool mist onto the blossoms of a nearby rose garden. Between the towering fir trees beyond the fountain, the snow-capped peak of Mount Rainier dominates the horizon. Bliss. (And even more blissful after a Husky win.) KEEGAN HAMILTON
