Layer by layer

They go back

In time,

Descending through eras

They can carefully

Climb.

What whispers

What stories

Does the wadi

Impart?

Will their souls see

The footprints

These rocks know

By heart?

    • Yay hurray!
      Only caution in such wadis is to make sure to check the forecast and NEVER go into them when it rained (even if it rained the day before). Best to go during the dry season altogether. Floods are a real danger, with literally no place to hide. Fantastic to hike through, though!

      • Yes. Last year a school in Israel ignored weather warnings and took a group of 18 year olds out on a desert hike (it had stopped raining but it had rained the day before and there were flood warnings). This wasn’t even in a narrow wadi like the one in the photo, but 25 kids were swept away. 10 died.
