Monday Moment: Petra, Jordan

Jordan, Monday Moment

The Treasury, Petra

Petra is one of the most unbelievable sights I have ever seen. What is left of it leaves me wondering how on earth it was created; having been carved right out of the mountainsides. It hints to what must have been here at one time; a bustling, vibrant city in an area of the world that was once the center of civilization.

We hiked around for hours and then found this trail that looped up and behind the site, popping us out above the famous Treasury building and the hustle and bustle below.

    Great photo. I remember watching Indiana Jones (the 3rd one) as a kid and falling in love with Petra. It definitely seems like a site that would be worth a hike.
