I got the concept of this image two years ago while cycling here. It is one of our favorite places to bring our bikes. I thought that this observation tower would look great in silhouette at sunset. The problem is that the gate to the refuge closes at some point around sunset. Supposedly, the gate will automatically open for exiting vehicles, but I was a bit skeptical. I parked in nearby Newburyport and cycled the 6 miles to the refuge. I figured that if the gate was closed, I could get out along the beach. It was a nice evening for riding, though fewer bugs would have been nice. And the gate did not shut before I exited.
