Wow this is impressive. Congratulations Karim
You are most welcome Pastor Sam. I know the mountains on the terrain map look alike.
This is NOT Mount Moses / Mt. Sinai. Not even anywhere in the St. Catherine area. I've no idea where the picture was taken, but it is both mislabeled and misplaced.
Dear Ray, congratulations on your accurate placing of pictures in the St Catherine area. I wish many photographers can do the effort. I see pictures of the monastery in places as far as 200 Km away from it !!!
Yes, I went up it in Sept 2008 on a Sunday, met a young grizzly near treeline, about 40-50 ft away. I hadn't been making any noise to warn them as I assumed there were other hikers ahead of me. There were not, but I just spoke slowly to the bear and moved off to the side of the trail, detoured,then continued on up the trail. The bear just watched, didn't bother me. I've met a few grizzlies over the years and so far, so good.
Thanks for the comment Andrew
Katin thank You, im very glad Your like my photos:)
Thanks a lot alkane for the compliment. The job is easy if you have good topographic maps. Otherwise it becomes very burdensome.
