Where's Harrison Ford when you need him?

When we walked around the corner of the canyon no one expected to see this, but this was the very first sight we saw once we were out of the canyon. It totally blew me away when I first saw this in front of me. I remember seeing the movie where Harrison Ford comes running out of the temple, and that part of the film was filmed right here, in Jordan. It’s an amazing site to see, and then to learn that at one time there was an entire civilization living here and thriving. They had a aqueduct built that kept flood waters from wiping out the people and their homes. It was truly amazing sight to see.
