Lightning strike

lightning_smallThis is an image i wrapped up recently for Backpacker Magazine’s monthly “Survival” feature. Each month is an illustrated “i shouldn’t be alive” type story along with some survival tips should you ever find yourself in that situation. This one involved lightning on the southern end of the Appalachian Trail. This story hit home for me because I was actually doing a month long hike on the trail when it happened! I had camped at the exact spot where this took place and was probably about a week’s walk further up the trail at the time.

Here’s Kuan, me, Nevin and John as clouds begin to gather overhead… I posted a bunch of sketchbook drawings from that trip here

Big thanks to AD Bryan Nanista!
