Travel Photo #2: Rock Cut Tomb in Petra, Jordan

This was a small rock-cut tomb in the hills just above the valley where Petra is located. We came across it several times while hiking. This small tomb shares several characteristic features with the larger, more elaborate tombs in the area (for example, the inwards-facing ‘step’ design at the top of the tomb). Very beautiful little spot… with a very mean dog sleeping inside!
