Jordan: A Tapestry of History and Nature

The high point for this leg of the trip has to be Jordan’s Petra, the rose-red city half as old again.

The Siq: an incredible gorge that literally provides an approach to the Treasury with its dramatic, unforgettable entrance into the city.

Beyond Petra, the Roman ruins of Jerash testify to the fact that ancient Rome had the keys to unexampled grandeur in the Middle East. Meantime, the desert landscapes of the Wadi Rum contain bleakly beautiful features and a sense of timeless solitude that has been contemplating travelers from this very same spot of the very same stars that once guided Bedouin nomads.

The Dead Sea gives time out. Floating in its buoyant, mineral-rich waters with the dramatic backdrop of the Judean Desert is a tranquil pause in the journey—time for reflection and renewal.
