The pathway to Petra

The path to the Treasury Building in Petra took about half an hour of winding through the rose-gold canyons the city was carved out of. I was waiting to finally see the famous site when I turned a corner and it was visible in the crack in the distance, where I was able to fully appreciate its scale.
