A few nice Jordan images I identified:
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "On the last steep descent on the road from Jerusalem is a view of scenes deeply intriguing, the Jordon Valley or plain of Jericho. The width of the plain here is sixteen miles and would demand completely five hours by ordinary travel from this point, to gain the foot of the mountains of Moab, which could be seen beyond the plain.
The ruins of ancient Jericho of Joshua’ time are around the mountain to the left of this picture just beyond the vision. The Jericho of Herod in the time of Christ is supposed to have occupied a position on the plain at the foot of this descent. The bed of the Jordon is about the center of the plain.
On the left might be observed the path on the northern bank of the brook Cherith. The path begins at the Elijah Convent. Right after leaving Elijah Convent, the path traverses the side of the gorge, very precipitous above and below. Numerous are the caverns and cells which have accommodated hermits and anchorites for numerous centuries. These caves may be noticed on either side of the gorge."
