Gum Wall, Pike Place Market, Seattle
An interesting alleyway in Seattle near Pike Place Market. For many years people have put their chewing gum on the wall here, some of it artistically.

AFAR made me want to see this!
I first saw a photo of the gum wall at Post Alley on AFAR. If I remember correctly it was from one of the photo contests. I thought it was unique and just the kind of random and quirky thing I love finding on trips. So I saved it for a future visit and when my boyfriend and I decided on a Seattle weekend getaway I made sure we saw this. It makes for a great story and a pretty good background for a photo but I have to say, it's really gross when you think about it. I was super careful not to touch anything else when I stuck my gum on the wall to add to it!
