1/4/2014: Old Civil War Fences, combined with snow, high winds create natural art.
1/4/2014. Snow drifts, trees and old civil war fences make for a serene wintry scene in the cornfield section of Antietam National Battlefield. The snow drifts were 2-3 feet deep! A beautiful, albeit frigid winter afternoon to spend at the enormous Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Washington county, Maryland. With gusty winds and temperatures running in the 14-17F range, we largely had the place to ourselves this day, and much of the snow from the storm a couple days prior was still pristine, unmelted, and untouched by man.
