One of my main training trails is on a TVA powerplant property...that's a
mountain top.  I got caught coming down it in a thunderstorm once and was
terrified to cross under the BIG high voltage lines leaving the plant. 
Mentioned it later to a TVA employee and he said those things are so well
grounded it probably wasn't that dangerous.  Not sure I want to test that
theory but if you every *have* to go past them that might make you feel
better to have heard that.
