We are all used to seeing beautiful mountains, lush green with foliage or covered with snow. Rarely do we stop to appreciate the rugged rocky formations on a barren mountain range. Here are a few images from a hiking trip with some friends in the Middle East region that capture the raw beauty of these unchartered rocks, and for the record, I did manage to mount the highest peak. You cannot even begin to imagine how peaceful/lonely it feels when you’re at the top, with nothing but desert sand below as far as your eyes can see.
A few of these photos were taken en route to the mountain range and I think they capture the essence of the whole trip, ergo their inclusion in this blog.
