Once again we opted for the Gettysburg National Military Park audio driving tour. It gave us insight into many of the sights we saw. As usual when we do these tours we frequently got out of the car and wandered around at the stops. We’re trying to get a deeper understanding of what happened here and why. One of the things we like about this visit to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania compared to our last visit back in the 1970’s is that with the program of battlefield rehabilitation underway the scenery is much like it was in those infamous three day in July 1863 and it’s easier to envision the events.

Magerøya Island

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
