Pike Place Market Seattle, WA - the Famous Gum Wall

Seattle is well known for lots of things, Space Needle, Coffee, Apples, Microsoft to name a few.

Few tourists and some locals actually do not know about our famous gum wall found in Post Alley in the Pike Place market area.

Decades of gum layered inches deep in all of its glory. Disgustingly beautiful. For me I love the colors and the history behind it. You could be swapping spit with Ken Griffey Jr for all you know. I'm not a huge gum chewer but each time I pass by I do my part to add a little bit of my history to it.

I hope they never clean it up. It's just one of those things that makes our City unique.
