While the few of us remaining hunkered down and waited along the narrow rock shelf, the storm grew stronger and started to produce quite a bit lightning. I wasn't really worried about any of us getting struck as we were staying below the highest rocks, but after one of the girls stepped out from our cover to peek at the sky, we all got a little worried to see her hair start standing on end. I really began to question whether or not staying had been a very good idea.
As the sun crept slowly downwards, one small strip of blue sky hovered tantalizingly close to the horizon. Everyone began creeping out for their hiding places and hopefully setting up cameras and gear, although the rain and lightning was still coming down as strong as ever. All eyes were fixated on the sun, still toying with us behind it's shield of clouds. We all knew there was still a chance it would break from behind it's cover before sunset, and as long as that chance was there, not one of us was leaving.
