Today is our first real day on the road. There are several main highways that run north/south, and we start south on the Dead Sea Highway to make a stop at Wadi Mujib – touted as the Grand Canyon of Jordan. The lower parts of the wadi are open for wading/hiking, but today the water is too high, and the access is closed. This is the first of several bioreserves we visit on this trip, overseen by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature.
We also make stops along the way for snacks and coffee, encountering sheep, goats, art, coffee, and olives by the bucket, as we make our way inland.
