The Persian Steps

Took a hike with a group from Sultan Qaboos University up the Persian Steps, an ancient trail literally cut, hewn, and laid into the mountainside. Climbing it is a bit like being on a Stairmaster for 6 hours straight. At the top I prayed the Dhohr prayer in a little mosque with a tiny mihrab (see picture).
