Back in the state of Washington, the highest town is Waterville, located in Douglas County and sitting at an elevation of 2,622 feet (799 m), and the state itself has a mean elevation of 1,700 feet (520 m), so Seattle elevation is much lower than the state average.

The city centre lies approximately 110 miles (180 km) to the south of the U.S.-Canadian border, and Seattle enjoys a long-standing historical and commercial connection with the Canadian province of British Columbia. The city also lies about one-third of the way to the Pacific Ocean from the Snoqualmie Pass of the Cascade Range, which provides an overland route into the interior of the Pacific Northwest.
