King's Highway - Wadi I Mujib Canyon

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Jordan's King's Highway winds its way from Madaba near Mt. Nebo, plunges 600 meters into Jordan's miniature Grand Canyon, the Wadi Mujib (the Arnon of the Bible), skirts a few Crusader's Castle and ends near the red rose city of Petra, entirely carved out of stone.

Panorama stitched from five scanned 28mm slides.

This is a great picture, but I believe it's not located in the right place. The wadi just to the south of the point on GE is the Zirqa Main, not the Wadi Mujib. Also, the road nearby is not the King's Highway but the road from Main down to the hot springs. The King's Highway is further to the east, running between Madaba and Dhiban, then across the Wadi Mujib proper, and up onto the Kerak Plateau.

Awesome picture. Do you have it in higher resolution? I look thru google earth to find beautiful widescreen pics for my desktop and would like this one.
