Narrow Passage Into Petra

Our group from the Ashkelon finally reaches the end of the Siq and the entrance to Petra. It had been an awesome walk and our journey was about to become even more awesome.This entrance into Petra was very easy to guard. With several gates blocking the path a small group of armed men could and did hold off invaders. 

Here I am in 1999 as I am ready to take those last few steps to reach Petra and fulfill a dream from my youth when I studied Petra for a geography class. I fell in love with Petra on that day.

I went back to dig there two more times and I will share all of that wonder with you.
