I am curious what everyone does when a thunderstorm pops up in the backcountry? I have heard different suggestions, and none of them give me a warm and fuzzy. To be honest, this probably scares me more than any bear could.
If it is your time well then it is your time. Stay low or head down the mountain.
i see some of you guys saying to get away from tall objects like trees.....wouldnt you rather get to a lower slope but stay within the trees? i think i would rather be there than the only standing object out in the open, but i dont have lots of experience with it to be honest
