I could be wrong, but that large rock just doesn’t look like it belongs. I do really like the combination of rock wall and wooden fence, so typically Gettysburg, and the contrast between earthy browns and grays. This was taken at Stevens Knoll, looking out over the fields where Hays’ Tigers charged toward East Cemetery Hill on the night of July 2nd. Maybe someday I’ll find out if that rock actually does grow there naturally or if someone put it there to be aesthetically pleasing :-)
