The photos today come from Nick Culver, an incoming MIA student.
These two pictures were taken in Jordan in 2009. The first is taken at Wadi Rum, a beautiful desert area in the Southwest near Aquaba. Near sunset on a misty day, the landscape began to resemble Mars and I wondered if that was the Sun or the Moon on the horizon. The second picture is a couple hundred miles north of the first, a Moses-like view facing west from atop Mount Nebo.
