Hi everyone, Friday at last!
My last two posts have probably done quite a lot to promote Jordan as a desert kingdom - and indeed, it is. Over 3/4 of the country is desert or desert-type steppe. BUT it is a country of many contrasts, many colours, many terrains. All of them beautiful.
The day after the Khamsin the morning dawned bright and clear. Beautiful skies, a light breeze and bright sunshine. Everything felt refreshed. So we headed north up to Ajloun, where this amazing sight greeted us:
This cheeky fellow greeted us as we drew up in the car park
I had never been to the nature reserve before, it was beautiful
This is one of the trails we followed
And this tree fascinated me, I don't know the species though
And just to round things off I found these flowers - stunning:
After we got back to the car we read a sign that said there are actually wolves and hyenas wild in the reserve - fortunately we didn't come across any!!
Back soon with photos of our visit to the Jordan Valley and a Roman City.
