August 17 photos of the day

Ok this is a shameless promotion of my current hometown - DuPont, Washington. DuPont is the original site of Fort Nisqually  - a trading post of Hudson's Bay Company established in 1833, then moved in 1843 to a site directly across Center Drive from DuPont City Hall. The grove of locust trees planted from seeds brought from England are all that remains. The two surviving buildings were moved to Point Defiance Park in Tacoma in the 1930s. These are from the 1843 Fort Nisqually Site Celebration last year. Local salmon caught by Nisqually tribal members is featured on the menu. Click for more info.
