A lone tourist explores the Siq, the path into the Nabatean capital at Petra, Jordan.  This ancient trade road passes for about 1.2 km through this natural stone valley.  Note that this is not a canyon carved by water, but a divide created by tectonic forces.  Note the matching rock grain on both sides of the path.  © Rick Collier
