Hey there, CY...

Neat story! It's episodes like the one you experienced that burn into our memories the places we visit. My first visit to Gettysburg [late July 1998] landed me at the 1st day's sites about an hour before sundown. The air was perfectly still and hot, birds winging home, an intermittent car zooming by on the highway [not all that much an intrusion believe it or not], and the sun turning the clouds yellow and orange. I had driven far that day [back roads out of Fredericksburg after seeing Chancellorsville and Spotsylvania], enjoyed my first roller-coaster ride down and up US 15 at Point of Rocks, and coming into The Burg on Alt 15 past BRT, LRT, Codori et al. barns, I was pumped. So the calming effects of Oak Hill were very welcome.
