Thanks so much Palmina for dragging me back to this photo, lol! So great to hear form you after all this time. And so now I see how bad I've been about replying to comments over the past many months. So very very belated Thanks Barbara, Christos, and ska-doc!

The very peacefulness of this scene is evocative considering the violence that took place at Valley Forge. **L+YS

Hi Merle - Thanks! The park ( when the government works so that it isn't CLOSED! >:-( ) is a wonderful place to spend the day hiking through the fields and woods or biking. A common misconception, though, is that this was the scene of a Revolutionary War battle. In fact, in spite of the cannons and lines of defense, all that the soldiers battled here was nature. It was the army's winter encampment, and they battled cold and lack of food.

Thanks for the link. My sympathies for the situation your government finds itself.

Kind Regards,

Merle
