Well, hopefully it's not OUR last crusade... Of course, that movie wasn't Indiana's last crusade, either, really, as he had a run-in with some aliens later.
Regardless, it seemed like a good place to go and experience something awesome!
Last year, we went on a 110 mile bike ride through the archipelago sea between Sweden and Finland. This year, we decided to go to Petra and do some serious hiking! We started out at sunrise and hiked until sunset and saw EVERYTHING that we could possibly see! I have no idea how much we walked, but we're both in pretty good shape and by the time we got to our hotel that evening we were pretty beat! It was SO AWESOME! It is even cooler than all the guide books will tell you. The pictures look pretty cool, but the real thing...well, it's beyond words.
Hiking through the Siq to get to the entrance of Petra--the Treasury!
On our way back, we were passed often by the carriage rides you can take from the Treasury up to the entrance if you don't want to walk the 1km back uphill. We found the walk very lovely and MUCH more comfortable than wooden wheels on rocky and unpaved ground! :) All part of the experience, I guess, but I liked watching them pass instead of sitting in them.
