Artillery Hill Bunkers • Port Townsend, Washington

During Fort Worden's reform school era--1960s--most of the fort was off limits and left "as is" by departing military forces. Being kids, we climbed through the barbed wire barriers at North Beach and spent summers exploring the myriad bunkers, tunnels, towers, pillboxes and underground reservoirs on the hill. Some tunnels went on for thousands of feet and were filled with graffiti and names of men stationed there during WWI and WWII. It was dangerous as hell and if you fell down a staff nobody would ever know or hear you cry.
