Secret Canyon - Passage 6
Egypt
A narrow passage in one of the magnificent sandstone canyons on the Sinai peninsula in Egypt. The canyon walls are shaped from the wind and water flowing through these old river beds, called "Wadis". The canyon walls are made of sandstone in white and yellow, some red granite and (in parts) black basalt - all the colors of Egypt!
