Our group was made up of three Americans, seven Omanis, and two Omani guides.
Basically, we spent three days hiking and camping throughout a desert about two hours north of Muscat. There were fundamentally no amenities, which made for a very interesting but also quite fulfilling trip.
|This guy was walking around right before we left on our first day's hike.|
|There were a LOT of camels around, and they were quite close to our path!|
|Here you can see the dunes (where we spent the majority of our time) in the distance.|
|Our guide attempting to go up the dune (we didn't get to go in the car of course!)|
|And slipping back down...|
|Our tent village, the first night.|
|One of the members of our group standing on the dune. I'm not sure why it looks like he has one leg.|
|Our group preparing to hike on the second day.|
|Just to put into perspective how really close we were to the camels!|
|We named this little guy 'Waheed' because the other goats didn't really like him much... Waheed= lonely in Arabic|
|What time is it? HIKE TIME!|
