Let’s be real, the best hiking trails are all above tree line (sorry-not-sorry). However, that means facing dangerous afternoon thunderstorms, particularly when hiking in the Colorado rockies.
To make sure that you know how to survive a thunderstorm in Colorado, the Sierras, or anywhere else you choose to hike, backpack, or peak bag it is a good idea to review the hiking lightning safety tips discussed in this video! I go over how to avoid thunderstorms, when to bail, what to do if caught in a storm, and what to do if struck by lightning. You even get some bonus tips for how to keep your dogs safe, which you wont find anywhere else!
