Saudi Arabia sits on a tectonic plate called the Arabian Shield.
The shield tilts up ten-thousand feet in the west , and in the
east it goes to sea level at the Persian Gulf.
The western Arabian Shield has a line of volcanoes stretching for
more than five hundred kilometers from north to south.
Adventurous souls can spend weeks exploring the rugged beauty of
the volcano fields. The Arabic word for lava is harrat, and
from this picture you can see there's plenty of harrat to go
When I arrived in Volcano Land, I was surprised to see a white
volcano rising up in the west. In this picture, the lava has
three different colors from three separate eruptions. The
brown lava is in the foreground, the jet black lave is in the
middle ground, and the white lava is in the distance. We
camped in white lava at the base of the black lava flow.
The volcano fields are a lava lovers paradise. There are
lava tubes and lava bombs scattered all around. And when it
comes time to climb a volcano, you can choose between a white one,
a brown one and a black one. We chose to climb Jebel Beda,
the white volcano.
Climbing Jebel Beeda involved typical volcanic routine. You
take two steps forward and one step back, but with perseverance
you make it to the top. Volcanic scoria always rewards those
who persevere. Although it may be hard to get to the top,
when you descend, you get to moon walk. You can almost run
downhill without falling because you sink up to your ankles in
scoria. The scoria securely grips your feet on the way down.
It almost feels like you have suction cups on your shoes that
anchor you to the mountain's side. At the foot of the
mountain, you shed your hiking boots to remove scoria trapped
