Fort Stevens (Oregon)

We took a quick weekend trip to the Oregon coast, October 2010.

Visited Fort Stevens State Park on a very rainy day.

Wiki -"Fort Stevens was an American military installation that guarded the mouth of the Columbia River in the state of Oregon. Built near the end of the American Civil War, it was named for slain Civil War general and former Washington Territory governor, Isaac Stevens. The fort was an active military reservation from 1863–1947.[1] The fort is listed on the National Register of Historic Places." Was also upgraded and used during the second world war, decommissioned in 1947.
