A long route to a lonely camp!

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Imamzadeh Davood holy shrine near Tehran was a luring attraction for families who sought a refuge from the scorching heat of the capital. By the arrival of air conditioners and the accessibility of resorts at the shores of Caspian sea the shrine lost its former glory. Still, the longing for the past idyllic times attracts some worshipers via this wavy road. A skeptic traveler may spend his short vacation in a lonely camp on an unfriendly snake ridden territory!

Ao ver essa foto, me lembrei do cenário do filme Babel, que já passou aqui no Brasil. Lugares curiosos e bucólicos e também muito belos. Parabéns por todas suas fotos. São todas de muito bom gosto.
