I think this path near Big Round Top is a good example of why sunlit summer trails have such an appeal. The mishmash of greens and browns isn’t nearly as boring as one might think, and the dappling of light provides a beacon for the journey. One thing: If you intend on hiking these trails, make sure to put up a good defense against ticks and mosquitoes. Both are prevalent on the battlefield, especially during the summer months.
