University of Washington - Husky Stadium
Scenes of the beautiful University of Washington Campus and Husky Stadium
Nestled high above Union Bay on Lake Washington, Husky Stadium's seating capacity of 70,138 makes it the largest stadium, college or professional, in the Pacific Northwest and ranks it among the nation‘s top 15 largest on-campus facilities.
The view from Husky Stadium is unmatched, overlooking Lake Washington and offering sweeping skylines of Downtown Seattle, Mt. Rainier and the Cascade Mountains to the east and the Olympic Mountain Range to the west.
The beauty of the graceful ferries that cruise Puget Sound captivates onlookers
Seattle lies on a narrow strip of land between the salt waters of Puget Sound and the fresh waters of Lake Washington. Beyond the waters lie two rugged mountain ranges, the Olympics to the west and the Cascades to the east. It is a city built on hills and around water, in a mild marine climate that encourages prolific vegetation and abundant natural resources. Amongst the best things about Seattle are the wonderful mountain and water views.
