Gettysburg, Pennsylvania High 73 Low 54
Today started out on the cool side and we were wishing we had worn Jackets for a while. It warmed up a little and was a really pleasant day.
Our first stop was the Visitors Center and we got some literature about the Auto Tour. I didn't realize how close to the town the battles were. We stopped at the Cemetery and took a few pictures. We intend on going back and walk through the Cemetery on another day. I had rented the CD's for the Auto tour and found the starting place and it is very well marked.
At one of the stops there is a bronze monument sculpted by the same man that oversaw the carving at Mount Rushmore. The information plaque stated that he had put his likeness in the middle of the faces on the monument. It was a monument to the soldiers of North Carolina. We thought it was interesting.
There are far too many picture to put them all on one post, so I will have to put some more on another day. The are a lot of makers along the roads.
About halfway through the drive, we decided to get Penny and take her with us, as we would not be going inside any buildings.
She walked a lot and got so tired that while she was sleeping, she didn't even wake up with the flash on the camera.
Thanks for visiting.
