A Damp Day for a Field Trip


In May I went on a field trip covering Romney to Delaplane shortly before the Grafton to Camp Allegheny trip, but I just got around to opening the Romney trip images in Photoshop today. I didn't take as many photos as usual on that field trip because it rained most of the day and I didn't want to ruin my camera.

In 18 years of taking these Civil War field trips, this was the first one where rain was a real problem! Once we postponed a trip for a day, and a couple times we had brief showers but they didn't last long.
