Day 16: Mount Nebo & Jordan River

Tianna's corresponding blog: (click here)

This is the view from Mount Nebo. This is the closest Moses got to reaching the promised land. 40 years walking in the desert but he was only allowed to look but not touch.

If you want to know how close he got, here are the mileage markers.

The staff of Moses with the serpent which he lifted up.

Some believe this is the exact spot where Christ was baptized. They basically diverted water from the Jordan River to a small pool where baptisms where performed.

For those who practice baptism by sprinkling.

Old stairs leading to the waters edge.

This is one the prettiest ash trays I have ever seen.
