Approaching the amazing Petra – the fabled Rose City – Photos

Coming over the top of a hill we were confronted with the town of Wadi Musa (the Valley of Moses) which has sprung up at the entrance to Petra.

Walking out of the town, with its restaurants and tourist traps we headed off down the wadi towards Petra.

We passed lots of sandstone rocks which had been carved and hollowed out by the Nabateans who used to live in them.

There were horses and carriages for tourists who did not fancy the walk in the heat. We walked.

The sandstone landscape was amazing.

We looked at the sculpted rocks – some were hollowed out as dwellings but others were harder to determine what they might have been.

Then we were are the beginning of the cleft that would lead to Petra – a wonder of the world!

I'd like to hear from you...
