On a clear day, one could see Mt. Washington that almost >50 miles from this spot. It's a great view and the university in general also has some great old buildings if you are interested in architecture and also some wonderful gardens.
I would prefer a 70-200 mm f/2.8 lens for this shot since it's quite far away using a wide angle would include a lot of distractions but anything above 50mm would give you a wonderful tight shot. if you go during sunset you could also get a golden mountain effect on some clear days. if you want some interesting foreground you can use the Drumheller fountain it would it would simply make a great shot.
Seattle has some good public transport and also within the university the transportation is good or you could walk around quite easily. but parking would be quite expensive around here.
Crowd Factor A decent amount of people
