A couple of weekends back my husband decided to take a day trip to Taif. He visited there before the kids and I got to KSA , and he really wanted the kids to see the monkeys hanging out in the area.
Somehow everyone managed to get up a little earlier than usual on that particular Thursday. I took a few pictures along the way, but kept my camera up most of the trip up to make sure I had plenty of battery life for our day in Taif.
There were a couple of fun guys hanging out though:
And this guy. Pretty sure this guy knew what I was doing with my camera. I mean, he even gave me the Elvis smirk.
After close to two hours of driving we found a little scenic lookout and decided to take a minute to enjoy the view.
We got back into the car and a quarter mile later found a roadblock. About two hours in, maybe 30 minutes from our final destination, our roadtrip had to come to an end.
We’re hoping to make the trip again soon, maybe next time we’ll actually make it to Taif!
