Travelogue Jordan 2011
Feynan

After lunch we took a small road to Wadi Araba where the Dead Sea is. A fantastic route through great scenery, rocks and soil in many different colors. The road itself is only great for the first part; then there is quite a bit where one has to drive slowly and pay a lot of attention. But one does not need a 4×4.

Great road, great view.

Now dirt road, still fantastic view.

Down in Wadi Araba looking back to the mountains.

Our next stop was Feynan Ecolodge in the lower part of the Dana Nature Reserve. We stayed therefore one night only because:

In the evening after arrival we did a not very spectacular sun set walk and in the next morning we visited a couple of ancient copper mines where the ore was taken from the earth a couple of thousand years ago.
