Fort Ontario, Oswego, NY

Fort Ontario, Oswego, NY

I had spent the night in my tent at Selkirk Shores State Park which is located about 20 miles to the east of Oswego, NY. While checking out in the morning, park staff had told me that there was a fort in Oswego that was operated by the New York State Parks and Historic Preservation organization. With only that information, and no specific directions, off I headed for Oswego, NY stopping along the way to photograph a fire hydrant or two :-).

This morning, when I packed my tent and left the campground at Selkirk Shores State Park and headed to Oswego, it was my intent to look at a fort. Turns out that the Fort Ontario that I was looking for was on the East side of the Oswego River and I was now on the west side of the river. That’s when I found the footsteps, the decorated fence and the numerous signs directing me to the H. Lee White Marine Museum. They didn’t know my interest in photographing different colors and styles of fire hydrants either but they even had one of those by the gate to try and lure me in.  All these things worked!
