As I arrived at Sentinel, Steve Coe and 2 other hearty souls were just deciding to leave. The heavy rain and lightning was formidable. I decided to try and get some lightning strike photos during the storm. I got off 4 exposures before the lightning stopped. 10 minutes later the rain stopped also. I even got a view of a few stars off to the southwest, but the night looked like a bust. On the way home the sky cleared to the west but by Vekol road I hit rain again which continued till I got to Phoenix.
