Caught by the rain

Stage # 21 Angliós >> La Restanca


Strong wind, lightning and hail storm during the night.

Don't know, but I always sleep well during these storms in the mountain, I like to hear the wind and the rain... outside!

After dinner I had inspected the hut, there seemed everything solid, the whole construction tied to the ground by steel cables.

So I decided that nothing bad would happen... even so I woke up several times, the roof crying like a baby with the stronger gusts of wind, or when the hail crackeled on the whole hut...
