Trapped by US Forestry Fire Trucks on a one lane road, I have never felt so frustrated as my efforts to leave the Florence Lake area on the Sierra National Forest in California two weeks ago. Already nervous from 3 incidents with Rattlesnakes and Bears on the first day of our camping trip, we then endured a lightning storm that was the scariest of my life. Watching as two forest fires started from the lightning strikes, we began packing up our campsite three days early as the fires got bigger. Realizing we might get trapped by the fires, we left Florence Lake only to encounter a 3 hour delay when some 50 fire trucks came in to fight the fire, using the one lane Kaiser Pass Road. I will never venture over the top of Kaiser Pass again, never!! Do yourself a favor and stay at Huntington Lake instead.
