Recreating a birds eye view of Olympia

I have a reproduction of the above in my living room and a friend and I were talking about the possibility of recreating the same view in today Olympia. Our conversation centered around driving around the Eastside finding the view.

Well, at mass this morning I realized I probably didn't need to do that. To Google Maps and Earth.

Basically, I drew a line down the center of the above image and pegged a couple of placemarks in Google Maps. Then, drew a line between them reaching up to the Eastside and exported that line into Google Earth.

Viola. There seem to be a handful of spots where someone could recreate the shot on the Eastside.
