Going west on county road 307 2-3 west of Hwy 89 drove through pea-sized hail where the ground was mostly white. There was break in the clouds to the west so we continued. Following 307 the turn off to 26N84 is 19.1 miles from Hwy 89 or 0.2 west of PCT. After going a short distance from the car we heard thunder and we left.
