    For anyone who doesn't know, Gettysburg is a huge tourist attraction, and based on the number of parking spaces
    is very crowded on the weekends. However, today is Thursday and there are very few people here.

    There are statues and monuments everywhere and are very well done. You have to see them close up and in person. The pictures of statues don't look good but here is some detail that gives a better idea.

    Hi Vinbowie:

    Nice ride report and pics, PM me the next time you plan to be in Michaux, my DR is down for some maintenance, but it should be back up and running any day now, I can see Michaux while sitting at my computer, only a short six mile ride away.

    This winter while on ADV I saw this lake on other reports. Decided to find it myself.

    Pretty good zoom capability on my camera.
