October snow blankets Gettysburg College -- photo gallery

An October snowstorm blanketed the Gettysburg College campus, combining with remaining autumn leaves to create colorful vistas on the historic campus.

A gallery of photographs illustrates the effects of the snowfall, which began Friday night, Oct. 28.

Several inches accumulated by Saturday afternoon.

Unfortunately, the heavy, wet snow damaged some campus trees.



Another gallery shows fall's beauty before the season's first snow fell on Gettysburg College.
