"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Cove Fort

One last pit stop on our way home was to give Cove Fort a quick visit. Oh, pioneers, you are so swarthy and amazing:

It was a humorous way to spend Kirk's birthday (Surprise! I got a fort for you for your birthday!) as we learned some interesting pioneer facts, saw some great pioneer craftsmanship, and listened to a knowledgeable and pioneer-loving tour guide.

The last time I visited the fort, there was an owl nest in one of the gun slots above the entryway, and there were 3 fuzzy owlets that we got to see up close. This time, the rain made the stairs too slick, so we only got to enjoy the main level rooms.

Have you been? What do you remember most about it?
