2010 Fall Retreat at Fort Victory

Sharpening Iron Retreat at Fort Victory
on the St. Louis River near Aurora, MN
November 19/20, 2010  
The Main Lodge
The Swinging Bridge

Out for a hike, the Swinging Bridge in the background
Bill near one of the stockade buildings.
I am guessing this stockade building is named  "Redeemed"
in part because it almost fell in the river after many years of neglect,
but it was pulled back, straightened up and kept from certain destruction.
Kind of like being "Redeemed"
