Never the Same Place Twice

On Saturday, two friends and I, along with one of my friend's daughter (my goddaughter), hiked to the top of Mt. Waterman. The last time all three of us were up there, we were in scouts--and got caught in a violent lightning storm. On a ridge near the summit, one of the scouts we were with was hit by lightning. He survived.

Each of us have an image in our head of the spot where this took place. However, 22 years after the event, we could not find it. It was obvious, though, that this ridge is a frequent target of lightning strikes.

My husband and I have been to Mt. Waterman several times over the past couple of years, but only in the winter. This is a great photo!
