It occurred to me that I hadn’t posted the Pennsylvania vacation we took a couple of years ago. But then again, it’s the 150th anniversary of Gettysburg, so in a way, I waited on purpose ;-) Well, it’s a few days late, but that’s the story I’m sticking to.
We started in Gettysburg at the visitors center, of course, where we grabbed maps of the 2-3 hour self guided driving tour around the park.
There were statues and monuments everywhere. I think it would have taken a week if you stopped to look and read them all. So we settled for taking pictures instead.
Aw man, really? Had to put the metal detector away :(
We did get out and walk around a little in The Valley of Death.
I don’t think this barn had anything to do with Gettysburg, just someone’s home, but it looked serene and I couldn’t resist taking a picture ;-)
We stayed the night in Harrisburg. Not much to do in Harrisburg, except take pictures of the Capitol building.
The next day we set off for Hershey!
Not much in Hershey either, unless you’re 8, so we set off for Amish Country to look for some of the old covered bridges.
Except that it was pouring down rain, and rain is not a photographers friend…
So we headed home a little early. I would like to go back some day and actually see some of the covered bridges under nicer conditions ;-)
