Due to Blogger's built-in limitations on picture-size, I couldn't put up all the Wadi Al-Hitan pics I wanted to. As such...BEHOLD! MORE PICTURES OF A RAD PLACE!
The picture above is a little panorama form atop one of the huge mountain-y outcrops in the area; you can really get a sense for how much wandering you can do out there, following out beds and surfaces for as long as you want.
The late afternoon-early evening is really the best time to enjoy the view out there.
And I really can't over-emphasize this...there is a LOT of outcrop to look at in the Wadi Al-Hitan.
And look, HCS! Hot Damn!
Seriously, it's pretty much Geo-Porn.
