Fort Worden

We spent the last few days in Washington state visiting our much missed families. Usually it is cold and raining when we are up there but we were treated to perfect weather! On our 2nd day there, we visited Fort Worden State Park in the beautiful & quaint town of Port Townsend. Fort Worden is 1 of 3 forts built in the 1890′s on the Admiralty Inlet. These 3 forts formed the “Triangle of Fire” to protect against sea invasions. You can see our visit to one of the other forts, Fort Casey, here.

Fort Bowie & the Butterfield Trail

After figuring out what exactly The Thing is, we continued towards our original destination: Fort Bowie. Fort Bowie was an Army outpost built in 1864 only to be abandoned 30 years later.

A 3-mile round trip hike is the only access to the ruins. It should have been an easy hike. But just when we were starting to think that we’ve gotten used to Arizona weather, we do something like hike those 3 miles in 93°F (34°C) heat. I don’t think we’ll ever get used to the heat here! And it’s not even the hottest month yet!
