Even if Gettysburg was just a pretty Pennsylvania town with no history, the scenery alone would be enough to merit a visit. The location is Marsh Creek just past Sachs Covered Bride, very near the battlefield. Though you’ll often see distant fishermen or perhaps even “ghost hunters”, it’s generally very quiet and peaceful here, making it a perfect place for contemplation. Autumn is an especially great time to visit (this photo, with its abundance of yellow, was taken in November).
