On our vacation, while Hubby and I were driving, we saw a sign for Fort Townsend State Historical Park. One of our goals for this trip was to not be in a hurry…to stop and explore instead of passing on by.
So we did.
Most of this fort has been reclaimed by the forest, and is now a beautiful place to camp. Built in 1856, the army fort served to protect settlers, participated in the Pig War in 1859, and as a munitions defusing station in WWII.

The only building still standing is the one that was used to defuse munitions. It is now serving as a group campsite.
A morning walk along the bluff was very pleasant.
I am glad that we took the time to explore this lovely place!
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
See the world around you!
