Description: [Camels and man from Gertrude Bell's caravan. Thlaithuwat in distance. "Our landmark half yesterday and most of today has been a strange group of 3 abrupt sandstone tells, rising sharply out of the flint covered plain; the Thlaithuwat - I wonder what caprice of Nature called them into being. We met some of the Sukhur, rahila, moving camp."]
