I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before (say, when he was visiting up in PT), but the bunkers are just the sort of industrial wasteland snej loves, especially as subjects of background pix for his desktop. And I spotted and commented before he did! w00t!

(Hey, I like ’em too!)

Thanks. :)

That was the first time I had visited the bunkers. The whole area was larger than I expected and much bigger than Fort Casey. I would like to explore them further sometime.

Have you heard the Tunnel Singer cds? There's a woman who sings in the bunkers and the acoustics are incredible. You can find the cds at Quimper Sound.

That reminded me to dig out my copy of Underground Overlays from the Cistern Chapel, by Stuart Dempster, recorded in the old Ft. Worden water cistern (2 million gallons, 186 ft in diameter). “Morning Light”, on now, features 9 trombones!

I hadn't heard of that! The Tunnel Singer's first (I think) cd was recorded in the cistern too. Another local man recorded a didgeridoo cd there. I've heard they've closed off the cistern to musicians now because of "liability." What a disappointment.

Wow
Where was the "If it fills me with longing..." inscribed? Odd to find such poetry in a Fort, isn't it?

Re: Wow
That was inscribed on one of the pillars in visit004.jpg and each of those pillars has a poem. They are all part of a collaborative art project built several years ago. I'm going to go back sometime and photograph each pillar and the plaque that explains what it's all about. :)

These are wonderful. You have a really good eye. And yes, they would make cool desktops. (This is my wallpaper at the moment.)

we have an urban exploration site PDXPLORE of sites and around the Portland area.

there is also a community:http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=pdxplore

we have been planning to visit fort warden this summer as a matter of fact, and I have yet to really see it myself so thanks for the sneak peek! the place looks wonderful.

We are very interested in networking with other like minded individuals in the pacific northwest areas so, if you are interested as well, then drop us a line. thanks.

(nice, image filled journal as well!)

What a great idea for a community! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. :)

Out of the 3 Forts around Port Townsend, Worden is my favorite. I think it is
also the largest. I still haven't explored all the tunnels as far back as they
can go.

Ah, I'd forgotten those. Your dad on his throne and me in your version of the picture it seems *everyone* took while I was sitting there. We should see how it is in winter when I'm over next :)
