The initial view from Little Round Top is a very special experience. In this shot we see the Devil’s Den witness tree (the first distant tree at center left which “sticks out”), the Philip Snyder farmhouse (top center), the 99TH Pennsylvania monument (hard to see, center of the photo), and Rose Woods, as well as part of Crawford Avenue at bottom right. The darkness of the trees which surround the view on either side gives it a mysterious and intriguing quality.
