The Elusive Space Needle

When I was 9, my dad brought my brother and me with IMG_20121016_184944him on a business trip to Seattle.

I distinctly remember riding the Monorail and, after arriving at the bottom of the Space Needle, my dad concluded that the fee to go to the top was too steep ($30/person or something like that). I can’t say I blame him.

So, the other day when I was in town, I thought I would right this historical wrong and do it myself.

Again, took the monorail (first time in 30 years) with my friend Carole, and we arrived at the entrance.

I couldn’t go up, but I did get this picture.

Foiled again.

Back in 30 years, I guess.
