We were not sure exactly where to go, so we just drove around and stopped at points of interest. Many people out getting exercise, walking their dogs or picnicking.

Major fort in the west before and during the Civil War. The list of names that came through here is amazing. Oldest operating military institution west of the Mississippi. Now a beautiful park on bluffs overlooking the river.
