Image Caption: NM21-768-011 Olympia and Southern Puget Sound, Washington, U.S.A. Winter 1995-1996
Olympia, the capital of Washington, is visible near the bottom center of this low-oblique, northwest-looking photograph. The city, home to canneries, breweries, and oyster fisheries, sits at the southern tip of Puget Sound on Budd Inlet 60 miles (97 kilometers) south-southwest of Seattle. Olympia is a center for manufacturing and shipping lumber products. It also has a thriving produce industry. Agricultural field patterns appear west and north of the city. Interstate Highway 5, the main transportation route through the city, connects Olympia with Tacoma and Seattle, Washington; Vancouver, British Columbia; and Portland, Oregon. Midway between the top center and the center of the photograph, the small town of Shelton is visible. Mason Lake is apparent at the top right of the photograph.
