Michigan in the Alps

Risoul, France
“What was originally a simple wall decoration dedicated to bringing a piece of the University of Michigan abroad with me during my semester abroad in Leiden, Netherlands, became the centerpiece of arguably the best photo I took during my time in Europe. I had brought my Michigan flag with me on my spring break snowboarding trip with the intent to photograph it and represent the Michigan Snowboard Club in the French Alps. Upon reaching the top of one of the back peaks on the mountain and looking out across the valley toward Lac de Serre-Ponçon, I immediately stopped for a photo with the flag, and couldn’t be happier with the result.”
