Photographer's Note

I took this picture (my first posting to TrekEarth) while at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq. It is considered a place of great interest because, as the tradition goes, Abraham stopped here to water his animals and to rest his entourage on the way to the Promised Land. It represents a striking contrast to the parched desert land surrounding the site. It is spring-fed, the wandering Euphrates River now some three miles away to the north.
