Just looking over my travel photos from last summer…

I have the “urge for goin’” as Joni sang, and was appeasing it with my flickr collection.

I snapped these girls doing a rubbing of a gravestone at Gettysburg last summer. It was during steamy hot August, in the late afternoon.

Neat! I’m not sure that rubbing gravestones in August would have been my first childhood choice for a hot summer day, but it’s a neat picture!

Ahh, Gettysburg. I’ve been there no less than four times. My great-great-great-grandfather was in the cavalry regiment that fired the first shot.

missb–thanks, it does not seem “fun” in the traditional sense, but kind of cool.

brian–wow! i’ve only been twice, but i had way more fun this time, with an 11 year old history buff, than i did when i went at 14. (it was pouring when i visited as a kid, so we didn’t get to do it justice.)
