Continuing last week's entry on one of the highest mountains here in UAE, the Jebel Hafeet.
Last thursday evening, we planned to visit Jebel Hafeet on friday morning before the sun rises. We were so excited to see what is it like viewing the Al Ain City at the top of the mountain. Been there for several times but usually by night with hot weather. We wanted to try what is it like going there with nice and cold temperature.
On our way to the foothills of Jebel Hafeet, we were welcomed by these sceneries:
(please click the images to enlarge)
east (Sanaiya District)
Al Ain Cement Factory at Sanaiya District
I continued to take some snaps as we approached the foothills
and the trail started here..
I continued to take pictures as I feel the cool breeze of the early morning air...
awed by the mixture of clouds and fog
and the sun continued to spread its rays into the horizon while I was taking this picture of the fences...
the weeds and plants...
and some cell sites...
I noticed this beautiful place beside the Mercure Grand Hotel ( a five star hotel )
the Mercure Grand Hotel ( click the link for info)
some guests of Grand Mercure Hotel as they jogged back to the hotel from the top of the mountain
we were almost at the top when I saw this palace ( maybe a palace of the Al Nahyan royals?)
I asked my hubby to pull over and pose for a shot hahahaha (it was so cold)
of course I won't let it passed by, I asked him to take some pictures too
a closer shot of the palace
after few snaps, my hubby continued to drive as I continued to click....and after few minutes we reached the top of the mountain
We enjoyed looking at the rugged mountains, encountered some campers, met some photographers and guests of Grand Mercure Hotel...and even the wild cats ( Monochrome weekend entry) and some migratory birds.
That was our early morning visit to Jebel Hafeet and this is my entry for My World Tuesday hosted by Klaus with team members Slyvia, Wren, Louise, Sandy and Fishing Guy. Go and visit the site to see the other side of the world.
Word of the day: hawwa is the arabic term for wind or air. Salaam to all!
