These are wonderful pictures. I like how you captured the haunting nature of the early morning (or late evening?) with the twilight and fog. Thanks for posting them.

early morning...VERY early morning :D. And I must admit to getting the heebie geebies a bit out in those deep dark woods in that pre-dawn wait for light to appear...it was probably lack of sleep or something but the hairs on the back of my neck were standing up out on that battlefield that night. I don't believe in ghosts but if there were ever a place to see them......

Great pictures!  It is a battlefield I haven't been to, yet, but I hope to - especially after seeing your pictures.  Thanks.

Wow! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing photographs. Sure makes a city girl wanna head out to the South for some history ~ all we have here are re-enactments. Which are great, don't get me wrong, but I'd sure love to visit some of the real battlefields someday.
Annie.

It sounds like you're a northern girl.  If so, one of the very best battlefields is Gettysburg.  If you are out west, you've got a long drive:D and the closest one is probably Vicksburg.  How different those battles look when you actually visit the fields themselves.  Good luck.;)

There are other battlefields in the west .  There is Picacho Peak in Arizona near Tucson, There is Sabine pass,   Honey Creek is one in Oklahoma.   Missouri has Wilson Creek and Arkansas has Pea Ridge.  

I live in the far far west but have been to many east coast and southern battlefields.  I have also been to all of the above sites except Sabine Pass .

I'm jealous!;)  I haven't seen any on the west side of the Mississippi, but there may be some chance in the near future.

been to Glorietta . Actually the best way to see it is on the train as you go right though Apache Pass.

I took the walking tour last fall. I took some pictures but unfortunately with so many trees and so much undergrowth obscuring the sight lines unless you have the trail guide to interpret things it just looks like a bunch of nature photos LOL! Someday I'll get around to annotating them so folks can at least get a glimpse of what is surely a most unique ACW battlefield.

That is why the train though the canyon is so great as you are above the tree line and looking down.  Of course you can't yell Stop I want to take a picture here !!!!. 

Been to Picacho Peak ?  The railroad runs though it , but they have this great signage and you can look out over the area and see how the California Column was coming into the area.
