    Bathers try to find the fountain of youth

    The pools are not unlike those one finds at Mammoth Springs in Yellowstone National Park in the USA, but here, there is a long history of people walking amongst the pools. Until recently even roads went up through the terraces. You can still walk along one section of the terraces with bare feet and sit in a few of the terrace pools. The waters were the original attraction to the area and remain so for many today. Many must have been rejuvenated, but many for many the waters must not have been enough to avoid an endpoint by looking at the size of the necropolis!

    Dawn over Hierapolis

    As always I collect scenes of sunrises and sunsets wherever I happen to watch these nature miracles. Every sunrise and sunset is unique and I've never been tired watching them in reality and virtually on my videos.
    Here in Pamukkale I was happy to see a dawn over ancient Hierapolis.

    Friendly Turkish dogs

    You can imagine how I was missing my dogs staying in Moscow! So every dog I saw in Turkey reminded me my German shepherds which were waiting for me in Moscow. This dog at the Kaklik cave seemed to be extremely friendly though he had an injured leg (pics 1-3). I saw another dog in Hierapolis (pic 4-5).

    I know two Turkish breeds.
    The Sivas Kangal Dog is a breed of domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris), and is the national breed of Turkey. This dog, which can grow as large as 64 kg, was originally used as a Livestock guardian dog.
    Have a look here Kangal Dog.
    The Anatolian Shepherd Dog is a breed of dog from Anatolia and bred for guarding flocks of sheep from wolves, bears, jackals, and even cheetahs.
    Have a look there Anatolian Shepherd .
