As media, Jenn Findley, needed to photograph the event. She also ran into someone who later helped her a great deal in her young career.
Rick Cusick, Associate Publisher of High Times Magazine, and Jenn became friends over the three-day festival.
Jenn also went to the concert, Slightly Stoopid and Redman. Courtesy of High Times Magazine.
