The Ultimate Playground/Fort
In one area of the base (this base is ENORMOUS), there is this incredible playground. The sign near it says is was constructed through the efforts of over 3,000 volunteers... and I believe it! It is a labyrinth of tunnels and passageways, slides, towers, bridges, ropes and MUCH more. My personal favorite was the tire swing. Fred pushed me on it, sometimes with a kid on my lap, and we'd spin around giggling. Parts of it look like parts of various aircraft, "training" equipment, and even a ship. Plenty of swings and slides, including metal slides- something you could NEVER have in southern Arizona! It's a truly remarkable structure, and the kids had a blast... as did Fred and I.
