The highlight of our trip to Egypt was the hike up Mt. Sinai. We began our journey up Mt. Sinai at 12:00 am first riding a camel then hiking up rocks which were described by our tour guide as steps. Seriously …. steps? We neared the top around 4:30 am where we rested in a Bedouin version of a coffee shop for an hour or so … then climbed more steps to the top. Facing one way we saw the sun rise … turn around and we saw beautiful mountains illuminated by the moon.
Sunrise happened so quickly … the views were breathtaking
