7:50AM . A JD$21 entrance fee and I enter the path to Petra.
Although "Taxi's" are available in the form of horses, donkeys and camels, I begin a 30 minute walk to the "SIQ".
I lack the words to describe the beauty and experience of "SIQ". This is the stuff you think only Hollywood can create, Indiana Jones style.
However, here is no Hollywood studio. This is nature at it's best.
Petra's most famous site.
I meet two cute friends on my way up.
They find my sandals playfully interesting.
However, soon mom comes and collects them. With tails wagging, it’s feeding time.
Reaching Al Deir, I am again rewarded with an impressive site.
A short climb beyond and you can take in a view of endless deserts in the distance.
"The End Of The World"
Rain clouds are forming as I start down the trail. Back at Al-Khanzneh, a mini sandstorm is brewing.
His uniform is unique and colorful.
The lights and colors have changed as I exit "SIQ". New shades and shadows give another perspective of it's beauty. Simply Awesome!
