It was a dark and stormy day ...

The forecasts for the beginning of our trip spoke of an "interesting weather pattern setting up" where "interesting" didn't sound good to me. We had nocturnal thunderstorms on our first night and woke up to dark clouds in the morning. It rained on and off all day - enough to get out the rain poncho, but not enough to set up the tent for shelter.
