Deep Wanderings

A quick post tonight. I will share some of my wandering thoughts about a deep subject.

Dead Sea - Israel - Lowest Point on EarthIn June I will be making another trip to Israel. During the trip we will be visiting the Dead Sea. Since this is the deepest spot on earth I have been having some deep thoughts.

Qumran, Dead Sea Scrolls, Caves at Qumran, EssenesHere is a picture of one of the caves at Qumran where some of the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

Tell es-Sultan - Walls of Jericho - Joshua - Walls Come Tumbling Down - Rahab - HarlotWe also plan on visiting Jericho which is the city that is at the lowest elevation in the world. This picture is from my first visit to Israel. See: Walls of Jericho

Masada - Fortress - Dead Sea - Josephus - Snake TrailHere is a picture of the snake trail that goes up the side of Masada. On my first trip to Israel I climbed up this trail. I do not plan on climbing it again. It was a very hard climb. Perhaps someday I will walk down, but not up.

Nubian Ibex, Ibex, Capra nubiana, wild goat, masadaHave you ever seen a Nubian Ibex? This one was at the welcome center at Masada. What a majestic creature. See my post A Close Look at an Ibex for more pictures.

Plus there is a picture in the same post of me cooling off under a waterfall at the Ein Gedi Nature Preserve.

I am looking forward to another visit to the deepest place on earth.

Have you been to the Dead Sea?

    I saw an Ibex at En Gedi on one trip. I’ve been down the snake trail twice but never up. I would like to. Look forward to your posts.
