Break in the Rain

Rainy day mountains
It rained overnight and was raining lightly when we got up this morning.  For a while it seemed as if we wouldn't be able to take a hike today, but conditions improved slightly and we were able to take advantage of a window of opportunity at 8.

We were out there between 8 and 9, and just as we were getting into the narrow trail section of the right branch it began to sprinkle.  The wind picked up.  By the time we got home the sky looked threatening.

A short time later the thunder began.  The heavy downpour came accompanied by strong winds.  The forceful rain lasted for only a short while, but it kept raining for an hour or so before letting up.
