Wadi Rum and Petra


A view from the monastery, carved into the rock on the left hand side of this photo
My friends and I made it to the top of the monastery!

The stone stairs to the monastery
Petra is not as climbable as Wadi Rum, but Petra is much, much bigger
When first entering Petra, there is a mile long walk through a narrow gully
With the lack of big cities around Wadi Rum, the sky is clear blue, and complements the browns and reds of the monochrome rocks
We stayed out to watch the sun set over the desert
