Katarina + Sinai photo album

Richard Mclellan's photo album of our Egypt trip

I had no GPS for this trip but Richard Mclellan's readings were as follows
Summit with Chapel and Mosque, natural rock high point at Alt. 2280m N28.53873Deg. E033.97533Deg.
We passed through what we assumed to be the Prominence col at Alt. 1948m N28.53434Deg. E033.97666Deg.
Hence prominence 2280 - 1948 = 332m approx.
