tucker's towerI seldom get enthralled with a building, but when I do, it’s because of the view from the top. This weekend I was on Tucker’s Tower built by the CCC as a governor’s getaway at Lake Murray State Park. Our campsite was at Buzzard’s Roost adjacent to it. When I looked at the website to try to pick a campground ahead of time, I didn’t want to stay at this one, because I didn’t want to look at a building, but the nature center and interpretive signs in the tower did a great job of pulling me in and educating me. The tower wasn’t just a building anymore, it was a reach symbol of history and hard work. I will try to appreciate buildings more in the future. This one will always have a special place in my heart now though because I experienced it with a wonderful, nature loving friend!
