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!
