Before super-storm Sandy's gale-force gusts swept through, Gettysburg College's historic campus was ablaze with fall colors.
Luckily, photographs captured the beauty of the season before the tempest struck.
Rising from the sea of transfigured trees were, as always, the cupola of 175-year-old Pennsylvania Hall and the red brick spire of Glatfelter Hall, as well as the geometric glass tower of the Jaeger Center for Athletics, Recreation, and Fitness.
Founded in 1832, Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences with a strong academic tradition. Alumni include Rhodes Scholars, a Nobel laureate, and other distinguished scholars. The college, which enrolls 2,600 undergraduate students, is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
