On Top Of The World

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.
