What A View


I stopped on the road leading to this Crusader fortress because this view was so awesome.

In the foreground is an eleventh century crusader castle or fortress set up to protect pilgrims on the way to Petra to visit the tomb of Aaron the first high priest of Israel and the brother of Moses.

Cool

That tomb is a little white dot at the top of the mountain in the background. It has been and still is a sacred place to Jews, Christians, and Moslem’s.

It is a considerable hike to get up that mountain but it is well worth the trip.

  1. Wow, I am so jealous. Crusader castles and fortifications are by far my favorite subjects.
