Happy Independence Day everyone! Wish I could be back at Penn State for this weekend (and Arts Fest next weekend) Funny story when I was taking that picture. There was a thunderstorm rolling in and when you're at the top of Pikes Peak, you are extremely close with nothing higher up than you. Anyways, The storm is rolling in and we have that flag pole with a metal eagle at the top so we are sprinting to get the picture and then get the flag pole back into the car before anyone gets struck by lightening. We all survived, but never the less, it was terrifying but worth it.
