Fort Ord February 2010

These are some pictures I took in February when [info]bikenutt, [info]gemini670, and I went up to Ford Ord together. We all seem to have a different take on Fort Ord. The place is so large and we have a ton pictures, but there is so much to explore there. I also have some pictures I took when we all went up there this Easter of the pool, church, and other areas. I'm working on these picture and will post them soon.

Fort Ord was a U.S. Army post on Monterey Bay in California. It was established in 1917 as a maneuver area and field artillery target range and was closed in September 1994. Fort Ord was one of the most attractive locations of any U.S. Army post, because of its proximity to the beach and California weather. The 7th Infantry Division (Light) was its main resident for many years. California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) is a small public university in the California State University system on the site of the former U.S. Army base Fort Ord, the University is only occupying a small space of the base. Much of Fort Ord is still there and abandoned.
