Wadi Rum

Oct 22 - On our drive south to Aqaba, we went through Wadi Rum, where the Arab Revolt was headquartered for a time.  We took Land Cruisers through the desert.  At our first stop we spotted a desert lizard.  He is hard to spot due to his coloring, but he is right next to Ra'ed's hand.
As you can see, the Wadi is not lifeless, although this is the Saharan bio-geographical zone.
This is a rock formation that has been renamed by Lawrence fans - they call it "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom" after his book.
You can also see several of our vehicles.
Can you spot the camels in this picture?  We also stopped to look at some petroglyphs.
This marvelous rock formation was at the spot where we stopped for lunch.
After lunch we continued on to Aqaba, to our luxurious hotel (The Intercontinental).  Here is the view from our balcony.
