Day 13 – Afqa to Hrajel


I am excited about seeing the parts of the trail that I missed because of the rain and fog last year. We hike along sheer cliffs that tower high above the countryside below.

When we get to the Afqa cave I venture up to the huge, gaping opening. The cave ceiling is so high that trees growing near the entrance seem like tiny shrubs. I didn’t like the way my blackberry camera showed off the scale so you will just have to get my book to see the amazing picture Norbert took.

Inside Afqa cave

The gushing water inside is bluish green and crystal clear.

This picture shows how close this huge cave is to the road! You can drive very close by!
