Color Canyon Hike in the Sinai Region of Egypt

The wind had formed the sandstone of Color Canyon in Sinai Egypt is a memorable hike.  The canyon floor ‘trail’ was sometimes wide and sometimes very, very narrow. As you walked through the cannon and followed the path of the wind, you saw the various colorful rocks weaving through the sandstone as if it were a Paint –n-Swirl work of art. The canyon got so narrow at one point that we had to crawl through a small opening blocked by a boulder.

    Amazing how much of the world is so much alike, yet so different – you could almost take the same photo in the Western US.

    I love the locations where the rock walls really envelop you – a great feeling of the power and majesty of nature.

  3. I haven’t done any canyon walking although it’s something I’d love to – we nearly did in Sardinia but in August it was just too hot & we opted for swimming in the river instead.
