Photo taken at Fort Lawton (aka Discovery Park) on Sunday 4/16/06. This fine looking group of young people are standing at the view on the south bluff which looks over Eliot bay. This is a wonderful place. I used to run this trail when I was attending SPU in the late 60s. At that time the Indians were staging an occupation claiming that by treaty the land was rightfully theirs since the Fort was surplus federal land. I didn't follow the details but when all the smoke cleared the Indians got the short end of the deal (once again) the feds gave them a cultural center but not the land.
