Pictures of Turkey – Cappadocia

Cappadocia is an area in central Turkey where the wind and water has worn down the soft rock into crazy formations. Parts of Star Wars were filmed there, so you can imagine the awesome that’s involved (even if I don’t like Star Wars). We took a lovely walk through “Love Valley.” I’ll let you figure out what inspired the name.

The “Fairy Chimneys” of Goreme.

More Fairy Chimneys, where people used to live (they’re really high up because erosion has brought the soil level down, exposing more of the rocks).

View of Love Valley.

I mean, why not?
