  1. I’ve driven past this, but I need to go through this village and do the associated hike before I leave Oman!

  2. Cathy,
    You and me both! I wish we had more time to do the associated hike you spoke of, but we were on our way to Jabal Shams that day. For now, I’ll have to do with these simple roadside photos. That’s true “Andy-in-Oman traveling style”, haha! 😉
