Failed attempt to hike Babe Haught to Knoll Lake from the Hatchery. As I approached the rim the leading edge of a thunderstorm appeared. After witnessing lightning hitting the canyon below me I didn't hesitate to turn around. On the way down I saw the rain coming down to the east. Practically ran back down Babe Haught being chased by thunder and lightning. Storm started earlier than I've seen in a while, it was still morning. I had been dropped off this time so I didn't have a vehicle to seek refuge in. Threw my poncho on and started walking down FR289 in a total downpour with thunder crackling above me. Looked back at the canyon from which I came and saw smoke coming from a couple of lightning strikes. I made it to the turnout for the Christian Camp before a nice family stopped and told me to get in. They dropped me off at the Kohl's Lodge where I had a beer and waited for my ride. Didn't get to finish my hike, but I live to hike again.
