Photos from Petra–more on the geology of this incredible site later. The sandstone was unbelievable:

My ticket to Petra
The architecture of wind, water and stone.
Intensely defensible, narrow pathways.
Still functioning aqueducts, channeling rainwater.
An above-human scale of construction.
Geology dancing.
A first peek at the Treasury building through the rocks.
The Treasury itself, sans Jones boys.
The view up is nearly as good as the view outwards.
Even without the intense colors, this space is beautiful and the creeping greenery is hardy.
Incredible sandstone colors in Petra.
