Back to Homestead

This past Saturday, we toured the Nike site in the Everglades. This is one of four in the area, and each site has two components — a command center as well as a launch area. The launch area includes three launch pads, each with a building large enough to contain three missiles, along with a bunker. A fourth building on the site was used for assembling the missiles.


After touring, we decided to hike a short path, before heading home. The Everglades was crawling with critters!
