"Morning on Valley Forge Mountain", 8x10, oil on board
Last week I spent the week in Chester County, Pa. where I spent the majority of my life before moving to Florida in 2004. It was a very hot week, in the triple digits all week, so activities had to be done in the early morning hours before it became too hot.
My husband and I used to take numerous walks and bike rides in Valley Forge Park when we lived up there, so it made sense to start the week with an early morning walk on Valley Forge Mountain.
The light was stunning as you can see from my photo below:
Few people realize how close we came to losing the war! Valley Forge was a critical turning point for America as it was there that the troops received their much needed training from Prussian military expert Baron Von Steuben, which eventually turned the war around.
