“During one of my many travels abroad, I was fortunate to be able to visit the famous historical and archaeological city of Petra in Jordan's southwestern desert, dating to around 300 B.C.  In this photo, I am standing in front of one of the most elaborate temples in Petra, Al-Khazneh (The Treasury). As with most of the other buildings in this ancient town, this structure was carved out of a sandstone rock face.”
