The Gettysburg area now has sunshine and highs in the 60s. However, before we reach spring later this week, we wanted to take a last opportunity to show you Gettysburg in the snow. During one of the days before the park roads were cleared we walked to and around Culp’s Hill just to document the appearance of the snow covered landscape. Today we visit Lower Culp’s Hill, or Spangler’s Hill.
