oman road trip day 7


We awoke on the final full day of our road trip to another breathtaking cliff-side campsite atop Jebel Shams. The evening before we had an unforgettable front-row seat to the daily light show; the surrounding peaks cutting the suns' setting light into razor sharp beams cast like a ceiling over the valley below. Our main activity for the day was descending from the high elevation area along a rugged gravel track through Wadi Bani Awf. We breathed a sigh of relief when we finally made it to the bottom, as this stretch was the most serious test of our 4x4's capabilities we would encounter - and luckily Addie didn't pee her pants from fear of falling off a cliff. That night we set up camp early and toasted to an incredible time in Oman with the last of our now beloved airport vodka and lemon mint juice cocktails.
