You got it - IN fact it is the top of Jebel Al-Mahdbah, the mountain in Petra that also has the Al-Kahzneh (known as the Treasury) carved into it's base. The  obelisks in the first picture weren't built - the top 25 or 30 feet of the mountain top were cut away and exposed the obelisks. Huge ancient worship complex on top of that mountain. My wife and I visited a little over a year ago.

Nice. I so want to go there. I am a little bit afraid of the geopolitical issues targeting American travelers.

Ironically i recognized it by the Ripleys Aquarium  (shark on roof) and the old roundhouse. That roundhouse has the Steamwhistle brewery and is worth a tour if you get a chance, plus its good beer lol

Along the GOR (Great Ocean Road) southwest of Melbourne near the Twelve Apostles. Beautiful road. We drove it last December.

I'm gonna guess near the southernmost point - but not certain. I was in Melbourne about 25 years ago with the USAF, and visited the southern tip and several areas along the coast - but don't recall if I actually saw the view you have there.

You are very close. It is along a very popular road and near a very popular site.

I understand that - but in fact, we felt very safe - visited Egypt, Jordan and Israel. The border crossing from Jordan to Israel and back was different than we expected - tight security and  you give up your passport for the crossing - but we never felt threatened or in any kind of danger. As with any different culture, if you're respectful, you'll get the same in return. I would encourage anyone to go.If you do, take at least 3-4  days in Petra and hike  the whole thing (we didn't have that much time and wish we did).Then go south to Wadi Rum and spend a couple days with the Bedouin camps. Well worth the trip.

That beautiful green water looks like glacier melt water. I will guess a glacier in Washington State, maybe along the Cascade mountains. 

Diablo Lake on the North Cascades highway in Washington state....well done :thumb:

I think I'm thinking of Wilson's promontory - but if that's not right I give.

Oh man. So want to do that same trip. Pyramids, Petra and Israel. Some day!
