Space Needle still surprises in Seattle

At 52 years old, the Space Needle landmark still looks great for its age, and still thrills visitors on a  daily basis.

Mary Clark first ascended the Seattle icon as a young lady 1963, and rediscovered the tower's charm upon returning almost 50 years later.

Mary returns to the Space Needle in Seattle, some 47 years after first experiencing the landmark on her 16th birthday.
