If you are stuck in the woods, seek shelter among small trees that are all about the same size. When it comes to lightning, there are no guarantees, but you can minimize the risks by not making yourself or your surroundings an obvious target. Get low. Avoid tall objects or metal features such as fences, power lines, irrigation systems and towers. Squat down on your haunches, keeping only the balls of your feet in contact with the ground, and keep your feet close together to avoid multiple "ground" points if you are struck.
