One of my favorite stops in Jordan was in the village of Dana. Set in the Dana Nature Reserve, which is run by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN), the village has magnificent views of Wadi Dana (the valley). It is great stop for nature lovers, offering lots of different hiking options. See the tallest building in the photo with the brown shack on top? That was my hotel. My room didn’t have a number, just a name: Crazy Camel. The magnificent colors in the limestone are best seen at sunrise, but the village is a great place to sit and watch the sun set on the valley as well.
