Honest question: Is there anyone who has visited Gettysburg without being fascinated by the rocks at Devil’s Den? If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you’ve probably noticed that I am definitely one of these people. It’s sure a thrill to be driving along the battlefield roads and then seeing this massive megalith of boulders (look how big this boulder in the photo is. That’s only one of many!) I’m not one for climbing, but just to stand and stare and imagine the battle is enough for me.
