I pass through Valley Forge a few times a week. This year I have been particularly keen to notice photographic opportunities in the park. Last Sunday, driving along the inner defensive line, I was taking in the fresh snow coating the landscape when I spotted the cannon in the picture. From my vantage point it was about a ten minute walk (in a sub-freezing wind chill, uphill) but I thought it would be worth it. The canon sat atop a small rise on the hillside overlooking a large open part of the park. I had never even noticed it before, but the blue really stood out in the snow. Valley Forge is a spectacular place to visit any time of year and I will be doing a week's worth of blog posts about it soon.
