The ancient sights in Egypt are amazing, and for being 3,000+ years old many of the temples are very well preserved.There are enormous temples all over southern Egypt along the Nile River, built over thousands of years for ceremonies and burials. Almost every square inch is covered in hieroglyphs, and some walls and ceilings still have the original paint used to decorate the carvings.  We absolutely loved wandering through these sights and marveling at the scale and beauty of this ancient world. Here’s some of our photos showing various temples throughout the southern Nile River Valley (Aswan, Abu Simbel, and Luxor).

    Clay – we plan to be home at the end of May, and I’ll probably try to come out to Minnesota sometime in June.
