Petra

Here we go!! Petra is a lot colder than Aqaba--I hope we are bundled enough.

It is quite a hike down through the canyon.



The hike was gorgeous and the scenery made it seem a lot shorter than it really was. But finally we got a glimpse of the Treasury (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade).

It is amazing what they caved out of the rock walls. I don't know how they did it.

Daniel and a camel--bet you haven't seen that before!!


Someone got tired--even though she didn't do any walking.
Amphitheater!!


The mosiacs on the floor were amazing.
It looks awesome! Do we really want to hike up the hill.

We did it!!
It was worth it!
Climbing around in Petra!!

We wish we could share all 300 photos, but you might get a little bored, and it is a little time comsuming to upload so sorry.
