Overlooking the Göreme Open Air Museum.






Terry and I hiked up to a trail along the tops of the rock formations around the the Göreme Open Air Museum. The Steep winding trail snaked along the top ridge of the white Hill. I slipped on the loose pebbles and caught myself as I slid down a rocky slope. My left hand got scrapped up but not bloody. Having already hiked every hill, staircase, cavern and church in the open air museum, I decided to to stop and sketch an overlook. Terry continued hiking the trail, but, I decided, that I would hike back on the paved road.

The Open Air Museum, is listed as a World Heritage Site which is is a place (such as a building, city, complex, desert, forest, island, lake, monument, or mountain) that is listed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as being of special cultural or physical significance. It is clearly a popular tourist destination since the parking lot was full and the trails were crowded.
