2/22 Jonathan Dickinson State Park Tower

I packed up and unhooked my rig so I could head to my next campground, but I also wanted to stop on my way out and visit Hobe Tower.  This is on the highest area in the county and on the site of an old WWII training base. 

For some strange reason, I forgot to take a photo of the actual tower, but here is the path up and the top of the platform.

Nice view from the top! You can barely see the ocean in the distance. The road in the distance is U.S. 1.


This was apparently a training base for the signal corps in WWII, so here is the plaque explaining that.  Hard to imagine over 6,000 solders stationed here.
