Do you see "The Brothers" peak from the Olympic range in the distance? This view is from the Viewridge neighborhood that sits above Lake Washington's western shore. You are peering down the view corridor formed by NE 65th Street. To the right on the hill ahead begins the Wedgewood neighborhood. These areas in the north end of Seattle were developed later than the central areas and are primarily made up of WWII and post-WWII era residential developments. The area's landscape, decidedly more suburban in feel compared to Seattle's central, downtown, and southern portions, keeps a greener, more forested appearance than other areas which were more heavily logged out early in the city's history.
