I was a part of the Revolution Drum and Bugle Corps drum line for two years before aging out in 2009. This photo was taken at Concordia University in Cedarburg, Wis. The dark blue you see is Lake Michigan. You never really truly appreciate the beauty of this country until you're warming up on a bank right above some of the most beautiful scenery. It was an amazing experience!
