At the end of 2016 I went on a guided hike that spent a few days hiking through the desert in Jordan and finished at the ancient stone city of Petra. The desert hike was wonderful with good people, good food and amazing views. The highlight was the emergency donkey name “Micheal Jackson”. He, and one of the local guides were there just in case someone needed a lift out. Each night we had the tents setup for us and and a delicious local hot dinner by the camp fire. Once we entered Petra I could not believe my eyes. How could people make such a place.
