Petra: The Rose-Red City Half as Old as Time

Nestled amidst rugged desert canyons and mountains, Petra stands as a testament to man's ingenuity and the mysteries of ancient civilizations. Known for its intricate rock-cut architecture and its iconic entrance through the Siq, Petra is often referred to as the 'Rose-Red City' due to the color of the stone from which it is carved. This archaeological wonder dates back to 300 B.C. and was the capital of the Nabatean Kingdom.

A Note from Brad:

"Petra is more than just an archaeological site; it's a journey back in time, a peek into an ancient world full of stories, art, and culture. Walking through its passages, I felt a deep connection with the past and a profound appreciation for the beauty of human creativity. I am honored to kick off the 'Northwood Around The World' series and share my Petra experience with my Northwood family."
