WW: Inside WWII Observation Tower at Fort Miles

Fort Miles Tower Photo
"Do not allow to slip away from you freedoms the people who came before you won with such hard knocks."
- D. H. Lawrence

I took this spiral shot from the bottom of the #7 observation tower at Cape Henlopen State Park after my mom and I climbed it a few weeks ago. The fire control tower was built at Fort Miles to spot enemy ships during World War II, thus I thought it appropriate to share before Memorial Day.

    1. The tower is about 5 stories high, so the climb didn't take too long. We were there about a half an hour, but that included stopping to take pictures.
