A Room with The View

Al Hamra down below in the western Hajar mountains

Right before the skies blackened and the winds howled, we had a gentle sunset and a few beers. That didn't last too long though, sometime after 10pm, the stars slowly disappeared behind a black mass of cloud. It was around then that we battened down the hatches and secured ourselves inside the tent to await the heavy winds and rain overnight. I didn't risk the camera in the rain, but when we awoke the next morning at 06:15, we were well and truly inside the low cloud until it started to clear around midday. On a toss of the coin, we decided to do Wadi Bani Awf on the way back to Muscat, hoping the track down to Balad Sayt would be fine – turns out it was muddy, but safe as houses!

Stunning rays of light as the sun disappeared behind the slowly encroaching clouds

We at least got the view over Al Hamra before any clouds covered the valley before 10pm
