We went to Gettysburg with my family several weeks ago.

On the observation tower we enjoyed a lovely autumn view (one would hope! it's an observation tower after all!). Then we got an obliging brother to take our picture.
On Little Round Top, however, it was chilly and windy. Subsequently, I was . . . displeased.
(Jared has entitled this photograph "The Cold Penguin.")


  1. I think Jared's title captures the essence of the photo perfectly. :)

  2. Oh, no kidding! We were there about a year ago--walking on the same ground. :) The Pickett's charge field is sobering, isn't it? And the circular "battle viewing room," or whatever they called it with the painted silo, lights, and narration.
