Fort Stevens adventure part 2

There is so much to explore at Fort Stevens (hey, I should get paid by the fort for this blog, I better put that on my "to do" list).

Sandy really liked the inside of the batteries - so many secret passage ways and areas to explore.
A circular staircase to the top of the battery just in case Sergeant Sandy needs to protect the fort. 
Sandy and I relaxing at the lookout station.  
Time to explore another part of the fort.  These ruins cannot be explored as in-depth as we want but we can still look around. 
Some sort of secret building built into the earth.  Actually they give tours of this during the summer if you sign up early in advance.  Something else to put on my "to do" list.  I wonder what secrets this building holds?
A nice view of the river that this fort was designed to protect.  If you look far enough you might be able to see Canada. 
Some of the weaponry used to protect the fort (replicas of the weapons as the real ones were either shipped to Europe or scrapped during WWII. 
Finally, a nice overview of the battery.  The park closes at 4pm so we had to leave (don't want to be in trouble with the parks department) so we will have to further explore the park another time.


  1. Wow, that looks like the top of an old tank. Would have been cool to take a look inside....

  2. Mama: Wow, that looks pretty cool! Sergeant Sandy, eh?
