FORT JEFFERSON ARCHES 1 © 2016
Dry Tortugas National Park, FL
Photographic Story Niki and I have dreamed of returning to the Dry Tortugas and this year, we finally made it to the Dry Tortugas, thanks to Superintendent Ramos of the Everglades, Dry Tortugas and Key Biscayne National Parks. It was a great trip and well worth visiting – great history and beautiful environment. As we landed at the Dry Tortugas we became excited for the adventure ahead of us. The last time we were at the Dry Tortugas was when we sailed there in 1978 when it was a National Monument; it’s now a National Park. As we walked around the Fort grounds to the residence where we were staying we noticed how much the Fort had improved since our last trip here. There have been repairs to the fort and the facilities for employees have greatly improved. Research and outreach has also improved dramatically. It was good to see that this part of our history is still alive and doing well. Digital – Archival Pigment Print This photograph was taken with a high-quality digital camera.
