What does the landscape between Jeddah and Mecca look like?
I am trying to describe a journey from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Mecca, but I don’t know what the natural landscape looks like. (I am only interested in the natural landscape, as the journey takes place in the early 16th century.) Can someone please enlighten me?
The Makkah-Jeddah highway is 80 km long. The area between Makkah and Jeddah includes sand and Mountains. As the western region (aka. Hejaz) is Mountanious and black in colour because of lava beds, so the mounations of Makkah-Jeddah highway are also black in colour. Its elevation is about 300 meters from sea level. Recently I visited Makkah and Jeddah, the land all around Makkah-Jeddah highway is turned green because of the recent heavy rains in Makkah and Jeddah which caused floods.
