Petra, Jordan

While the ladies were enjoying the beach at the Red Sea; I took a day long jaunt into Jordan to see the famed facades in the ancient city of Petra! What a breathtaking experience! A long, hot hike down a slot canyon which opens up to the facade featured in the "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" movie. It's quite amazing. But then you hike around to the right and down into the valley and you realize that this is just an appetizer! There is a whole city of the elaborate and gigantic facades. You could literally spend days hiking around and exploring. One day was not enough...but it certainly was incredible!!
