Idyllic Gettysburg and Adams County: Sachs Covered Bridge and the Countryside

On our way out of Gettysburg, we took our time driving through the gorgeous countryside. The Sachs Covered Bridge is a stunning structure. We have more information about it on an earlier post, available here. This 100 foot structure is a true beauty and it played a critical role throughout the battle, including a way out for the Confederate armies when they finally ran off in defeat. This is a stunning covered bridge. Since the day we went was the start of trout season, there were people fishing these trout stocked waters. It is such a relaxing place.

The rest of our journey through Adams County went through seemingly endless groves of fruit trees that were in full spring bloom.
Apple trees blooming in the "Apple Capital" of Pennsylvania. It almost looks like the logo for Angry Orchard. We love orchards and seeing the hard work that small businesses do to keep us fed. It also gives a glimpse of what the immediate battlefield area looked like before the battle. Other places out in the country that are awesome to check out include the Land of Little Horses, and more, which we will cover in our next article as we continue our drive out of Gettysburg and Adams County onto the Lincoln Highway.
