This photograph was taken at the end of our session. We are looking along U.S. Avenue towards the Trostle Farm. This view was taken facing southeast at approximately 8:00 AM on Wednesday, February 3, 2010.

The Gettysburg area experienced another snowfall Tuesday evening and early Wednesday morning. We chose to take a walk around the Trostle Farm Wednesday morning to see what pictures we could take before the snow began to melt.
