Mount Simeon, Syria

The family is proud of their goats, but that's about the only option in the vast region west of Aleppo.  Millennia of bad land use practices, beginning with the Byzantines, have left behind a scarred landscape bereft of top soil.  It's spring, and the nomads are moving.  Note the tent.  [1996]
