Bask in the glow


This is Leopold. He was stationed at Maine’s Fort Knox. The only fort I’ve ever visited with a library and a reading room.

Other troops were sent there a few times in history. But they elected to camp outside the fort. There were so many places for cannons. And no cannons were ever sent to the fort.

This fort was built years too late. To combat a threat long past. It’s best seen from across the river, as it sits on a hillside.
