The nearby world (and a dash of help)

So one, quite talented member, of our staff managed to take a few pictures just outside the office building. I think they're really awesome and help to show you all the inspiring beauty that we're fortunate enough to inhabit.

Kinda makes me wish I had an office with a view. :P Anywho I just thought these were too awesome to not share. A big thanks to Scripter James for providing me with the photos.

As a little aside, I've been steadily following the success and hardships you all have been facing with the weekend puzzle. This puzzle was provided by our ever-talented Mari. But she has taken a slight vacation and left me to delegate the obscure science of "puzzle support." In this regard, I am therefore providing you with a probably more substantial hint than necessary and as such will be placing it in spoilers.


Since you know you've at least seen the correct numbers, I thought I'd help you by providing assistance in deciphering the letter code. So here goes: within the brackets is a partial key [ 1 = A and 15 = O ]


Don't give up, you're almost there!

What state is the office in?

(not a clue) either! We know that some of the numbers are right, but which ones???? There've been so many theories so it's really hard to decide. We need to know how to interpret the dominoes! Is 2│2 22 or 2/2 or 2+2 or 2-2 or 2.2 or WHAT??? *confusion*

@Clare - Our offices are located in Bellevue, Washington. It's a small city right outside of Seattle!

@anon - I think I'm going to post a bit more help today that should pass along all the necessary info. Keep an eye out.
