In this shot, I’m standing at the Spangler farm looking toward the Sherfy farm (the farmhouse and barn are visible at center left). To the left is Big Round Top, looking rather scraggly. The Henry Spangler farm is a very peaceful and interesting place to explore if you don’t mind a relatively long trek from Confederate Avenue during which time you’ll be obliged to navigate huge piles of horse, um, waste. Well, it makes it more authentic, at least. I’m sure farm folks in the 19TH century were similarly engaged in avoiding the “presents” their equine friends left behind.
