Lightning, Tragedy and Lessons Learned about Safety and Awareness: A Look Back at One of Lightning’s Deadliest Strikes

CUMBERLAND, Maine -- This Sunday marks the 70th anniversary of one of the deadliest lightning strikes in the U.S. and the National Lightning Safety Council is recalling the tragic event to spotlight the dangers of lightning, a common, yet underrated weather peril.

Lives were shattered in an instant on August 1, 1951 when lightning struck a tree at Wind Cave, Wyoming, killing four girl hikers and their leader and injuring nine others. The hikers were on a trek from a girls' camp in Darby Canyon to Wind Cave, Ice Cave, and back.

"Fortunately, most people are more aware of lightning's dangers now than they were in 1951," said John Jensenius, a lightning safety specialist with the National Lightning Safety Council (NLSC).

According to Jensenius, the Center for Disease Control logged 248 U.S. lightning deaths in 1951, which is one more than the combined total of 247 deaths the NLSC has documented for the past 10 years.

Karma Lambert, one of the most seriously injured survivors, vividly remembers events up until the time when lightning struck the tall tree that she and several others were sitting under. Lambert, now 84, attributes her survival to the quick actions of hiking guide, Fred Miller, and several older girls who repeatedly administered "artificial respiration."

Lambert's detailed account of the incident and her 2015 return to the site is featured on her daughter's website:

Now, 70 years after the event, Kelly Loosli, a professor of Animation and Film at Brigham Young University is interviewing survivors of the Wind Cave lightning incident for a documentary he's preparing. Loosli is the grandson of the then Teton County Sheriff Dwight Loosli, who organized men and horses to rescue the injured and transport the dead in the ensuing hours after the lightning strike.

"My interest stems from my grandfather's involvement in the rescue and the heroism of all those involved," said Loosli. "This was a terrible tragedy and I don't want to see anything like this ever happen again."

Lambert has advice for anyone headed out on a hike, "Check the forecast and if thunderstorms are predicted, just don't go."

Jensenius wants people to know what happened that tragic day in 1951 to stress the importance of monitoring weather conditions to limit the lightning threat.

"Consider canceling or postponing activities if thunderstorms are predicted and remember, when thunder roars, go indoors," advises Jensenius. "Lightning safety is a minor inconvenience that just might save your life."

The National Lightning Safety Council invites educators, government officials and others to help build lightning safe communities by learning more about lightning safety, lightning protection and risk reduction.

The Role of ‘Green Therapy’ in Improving Mental Health

LANCASTER, Pa. -- With mental health struggles surging globally, particularly in the US, Adventure Explorations has released a new white paper entitled "Improving Mental Health: The Power of Outdoor and Adventure." The piece explores the benefits outdoor activity has on mental health. Beyond exercise, as consistently acknowledged by scientists, it's the active exposure and connection to nature and the outside that is producing these exciting results.

Data shows that between 2019 and 2020, anxiety disorders increased 17.4% while depression increased 17.8%. In 2019, 19.2% of adults received mental health treatment. However, 30-50% of those who were prescribed medication as a result did not stick to their therapy treatment.

While fear of medication disrupts compliance-not unlike the realities of concerns surrounding the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines-it's often the lack of visibility of side effects that drives the fear. Green Therapy, however, creates benefits that are near immediate and noticed. Mental health professionals agree that movement outdoors, in nature, is key to a happier, heathier life. Being outdoors provides a simple and safe way to decompress with less cost and no side-effects and is ideal for people of all ages.

That's where Adventure Explorations, an outdoor adventure guiding company, located in Lancaster and Boiling Springs, PA, comes in. They use top notch-gear and expert guides to bring people into nature to create new skills and meaningful, fun experiences. Suitable for all ages and ability levels, including those with physical and mental challenges, the adventure company helps people to bridge the gap between self-discovery and its potential.

"What was startling throughout this investigation was the number of concurrent articles published by experts, and reported on by esteemed publications such as the Wall Street Journal," said Adventure Explorations co-owner Chris Paradysz. "But, beyond them, the recognition that these therapies are literally free opened up amazing possibilities for balanced therapeutic prescriptions. Imagine doctors writing a prescription for 200 minutes of outdoor therapy."

Partners Snake Avoidance is On A Mission to Keep Your Dog Safe in The Desert

CAVE CREEK, Ariz. -- Partners Snake Avoidance has trained over 17,000 dogs to avoid the scent and sound of a Rattlesnake. This protects the dogs and their owners from the deadly venom of a rattlesnake. A Rattlesnake bite can cost several thousand dollars to treat and may prove deadly. Partners Snake Avoidance recommends every dog to have this type of training if they are going to be in a desert environment and especially if they are curious or active in nature.

Partners Snake Avoidance wants to keep you and your dog safe in our wonderful desert environment. As the weather warms up and the creepy crawlers are more pronounced the risk of a snake bite dramatically increases.

Treatment of a Rattlesnake bite can cost thousands of dollars in anti-venom and could still prove to be deadly. Not to mention the emotional cost of a traumatic experience. The alternative is to take your dog to Partners Snake Avoidance in Cave Creek, Arizona and undergo just 15 minutes of training in order to create a negative association with the scent and sound of a rattlesnake.

The methods used by Partners Snake Avoidance are incredibly safe for both the dog in training as well as the rattlesnake. Upon arriving, your dog is fitted with the training equipment and taken out onto the course in a real desert environment. Partners Snake Avoidance's instructors and handlers walk your dog up to double-mesh wire cages and once your dog shows curiosity to the scent or sound of the rattlesnake a small stim from an E-Collar is applied. This gives the dog a negative association with that scent or sound and a flight response is created.

While training is not guaranteed as many variables in the wild can affect results, they have 100s of 5-star reviews that speak to the efficacy of training.

In an interview, one client, Jon Hegreness, said: "Through the years I have taken three dogs to this location for Snake-proofing. I spend a lot of time in the desert with my dogs and can attest to the training being effective. All three of the dogs I put through their program had times they encountered snakes and none of the dogs wanted anything to do with them. The side effect of their avoidance was also to alert me to the snake's presence near our trail. Having watched a neighbor's dog go through the pain and treatment of a bite, and see the financial pain that caused the neighbor, it is a good idea to give these guys a go."

Partners Snake Avoidance is starting this year's training on February 22, 2020 but the first few sessions are already booked out. Costing only $100 and less than 15 minutes of time, this training is a no-brainer for any dog in the desert.

You can book your dog's session in minutes using their online scheduler HERE:

First 20-degree Baby Sleeping Bags Hit Store Shelves in REI Exclusive

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Morrison Outdoors, just 7 months removed from their launch campaign on Kickstarter, have brought their line of Little Mo Baby Sleeping Bags to over 60 REI locations across the U.S.

Available in 20-degree (F) and 40-degree (F) temperature ratings, the Little Mo Baby Sleeping Bags are designed to comfortably fit infants from 6 months up to 24 months old. Having no hood or drawstrings, these sleeping bags meet all AAP Guidelines for SAFE Infant Sleep, and both models weigh less than 1 pound each for use in backpacking.

Tavis Malcolm, founder of Morrison Outdoors, explains: "It made no sense to me that we should be sleeping in cozy down sleeping bags when we went camping while our baby was wrapped up in layers of clothes and blankets. We wanted to make something for our baby to sleep in that was warm, comfortable, and safe to use. Now we hope our Baby Sleeping Bags can help parents have at least one less thing to worry about."

For full details and in-store locations, check out the Little Mo 20 and Little Mo 40, both at

About Morrison Outdoors:

Morrison Outdoors was born from a desire to make camping with a baby just a little bit easier. Their patent-pending Little Mo Baby Sleeping Bag is the first 20-degree sleeping bag designed to meet all AAP Guidelines for SAFE Infant Sleep.

Tavis Malcolm, an Eagle Scout, designed their line of Baby Sleeping Bags with his wife, Amber Malcolm, a registered nurse with pediatric experience. Using techniques he learned online and a 1970s-era sewing machine that Amber had found being given away for free, Malcolm turned their unheated Denver-area garage into a makeshift sewing studio in order to develop their patent-pending design.
