Picture of the Day: Wellfleet Fire Tower

Wellfleet Fire TowerMost of the upper East Coast suffered yesterday from the "Snowfall of the Century - Part 2". Not here - we received about 3/4 inch of slush. This afternoon we had bright sunshine. On my drive to Wellfleet I was taken by the Wellfleet fire tower and how it looked against the very blue sky. A few facts:

  • Built originally in 1927, rebuilt in 1960
  • At a cost of $2000
  • It's 68 ft tall and sits at an elevation of 50 ft.
  • Still classified as an active tower

Check out the tower's webpage.
