Blockhouse and gun holes

This is Crockett's Blockhouse so named by the man who's farm it protected.  The gun ports are shown from the inside.  On the outside of the blockhouse you see tiny square ports but the inside is angled so the gun can shoot from every angle.
This blockhouse was built in 1855 as was the one on my other blog. (

Road to Baker---the mountain

The road to Mt. Baker was fun but full of snowy byways and ended with the road covered in snow.  Maybe open in July.  MB

Ranger Station

This is the Ranger forest Service station in Glacier, Wa.  The building was built by the CCC workers in 1938.  I liked the look of the building.
