It took the 20 vehicles 8 hours to complete the trail. Stuart asked us to guess how far we thought the group traveled. As you can see from today's and yesterday's photos, it is pretty slow going for each of the 20 Jeeps to creep through such difficult terrain.
The answer is that the group travelled one-half mile (.8 km) in their 8 hours. Stuart reported that he learned a lot about driving his Jeep, but he does not plan to take any trails like that again.
This week we are showing photos of some of the remarkable sights to Egypt on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
