Petra, day 4

I went off the beaten path again today, turning left up into the hills along a horse trail that was occasionally hard to follow but eventually led me to an overlook of the high place of sacrifice, where I went on my first day. On the way, I was treated to spectacular views like the one above, and a closeup look at a nursery/tree farm. Then I wandered slowly down to the center, drank a bunch of tea, visited a couple places I hadn't spent much time at, and then walked in the rain back to my hotel. A short but strenuous and rewarding day. So long, Petra!
