While the town is certainly already buzzing with activity as it hosts school groups and boy scout troops, the majority of visitors will see Gettysburg during the summer months. Adams County is gorgeous during every season, but I can't help thinking that summer visitors will miss something by not getting to see springtime in our neck of the woods.
Therefore, I took a few hours last week and toured some of my favorite spots on the battlefields, camera in hand. The day was overcast (as I said, it's been a stormy season), but I think that only added drama to the shots I took. Enjoy!
