“Picture of an Orb?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We didn't arrive in Gettysburg until dark, but since Sachs Bridge was on my list of things to do at night, it was our first stop. When we arrived, it was pitch black and very difficult to see anything. So, after a short while, we decided to leave and come back the next morning to enjoy the beauty of the bridge in the daylight. As I was walking away, I quickly turned around and took the attached picture, capturing what appears to be an orb. I immediately took another picture to compare, but the image was not on the second picture. You decide.

“A beautiful historical bridge in the Gettysburg area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

The bridge is a well preserved trussed structure. It is pedestrian only. There is a small parking area nearby. You should read the history before you go as it is quite interesting. It is very near Gettysburg and is good to go to The Hauser Winery nearby too.

“Scenic, serene and beautiful worth more than a quick look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

We drove out to the bridge on Sunday, September 22nd.

Beautiful, scenic and serene.

We took plenty of photographs to try and capture the moment. Definitely worth more than a quick look.

We will visit the bridge again next time.

“Neat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Neat experience. Visited it more than once on our trip. Pretty during the day and spooky during the night.
