KUSA - An electrical storm moved over Shannon Dizmang Friday afternoon during a hike up Mount Elbert. And it happened fast.

"My tripod was buzzing, another guy up there was buzzing ...hair was standing up and our ears were crackling with static," Dizmag said.

Dizmag said the storm was a "learning experience" for everyone that was up there and urges people to take storms seriously this year.

"We all feel very fortunate," Dizmag said. The photo Dizmag took captured the quick-moving storm.
