Mount Nebo, a viewpoint and summit in Jordan, is (according to the Bible) where Moses first saw the promised land. Today it’s a popular tourist site where you can catch some truly spectacular views of the surrounding areas—Jericho, Jerusalem, the Negev desert, the Jordan Valley. To stand on Mount Nebo, where Moses once stood, and see all these historically important places…it was a nice feeling.

There was something nice about the typography of the letters on this silly construction size that I couldn’t resist sharing it here. Look at the curve on that R. Beautiful.

It wasn’t even clear to me what this sign was trying to tell me. It didn’t seem like there was anything beyond it as we were only 15 feet from the edge of the cliff here and there was a whole separate viewing platform just to the right.

Thankfully it was a bright and sunny day when I visited Mount Nebo so we were able to catch a glimpse of Jerusalem and Jericho over in the West Bank. Jerusalem isn’t far from this point and it felt nice to be so close again.
