There are parts of Seattle that have incredible views of the mountain ranges surrounding the city. HeyWhatsThat shows you for a given location + altitude where your horizon is and what you can see on them. At Golden Gardens you can see quite a lot of the Olympics on a clear day, but I never realized how *little* of the range you can actually see. Some of the largest peaks are closer to Port Angeles (https://www.peakbagger.com/range.aspx?rid=12201) and are behind the relatively diminutive Mt Townsend.
go look at some mountains ya bums.
