We drove to Yanbu’ in the evening and saw very little.  This is my second time on this road so I knew there wouldn’t be much action on the way back either – even if it was during daylight.  I did find the mirage on the way back rather attractive.  It remained with us most of the journey and we seldom saw the horizon.

The journey from Jeddah to Yanbu was nothing exciting.  The road is long, has two lanes, and desert on either side.

However there was one point near where the road splits to Medina which was rather beautiful.  There were more trees and mountains in the background.  In fact the roat to Medina is behind the mountains that are just about visible.  I heard today that that road is a gorgeous drive all the way to sacred Medina.
