The light was kissing beautifully across the entrance of "The Ancient Treasury Building"... It's so hard to beat that morning light. Always worth getting up for. JOY. K.W. #5606395

Yes, Candice, speaking of anitcipation, the Petra Guide turns the group around backwards just before the final bend in the road and makes the group walk backwards with attention in the opposite direction, then when you turn around - there it is... this first peek of Petra. A blessing indeed. JOY. K.W. #5606491
