That’s what we decided this morning, so we decided to stay another day here to enjoy it. It’s the type of camp we’ve been looking for exploring this creek’s access points.
We sat around and noticed the thunder clouds were forming early today, around noon and we were wondering what that would bring.
Around three PM we found out, the thunder started high up in the clouds and it started to rain lightly, at first. Then the lightning picked up and the so did the rain, sometimes turning to hail.
We were sitting in our cozy vans enjoying the thunder and lightning strikes which at first were far away, then the lightning started getting closer.
Boom, bang, we got a few hits real close that shock the vans. A few of them hit so close and so fast, it felt like you jumped out of your skin, at least that was the feeling. It lasted for about two hours before the rains let up and the sky quieted down so we could get out of our vans.
Once the rain drops stopped we sat around outside in our chairs discussing the storm and shooting the bull.
No better luck
Great camp spot
