You found it! The Arabian Desert is made up of all of the deserts in the
Arabian Peninsula. The Rub al Khali Desert is located in the southern part of
the peninsula and covers about 647,500 square kilometers (250,000 square
miles)—about the size of Texas. In some parts, sand dunes reach heights of
almost 300 m (1,000 ft). It's usually pretty hot in the summer, when
temperatures often rise above 49°C (120°F).
Wow, that's hot. Better check your equipment. You've already packed many
essentials, such as water, sun protection stuff, and a pocket knife. Now you
need items to help you figure out where you are.
