Masada

We visited 3 places yesterday: Masada, Kumran, and the Dead Sea. Each one was a unique and great experience. We started at Masada which is an amazing mountain in the desert where King Herod built a massive palace and small city. About half our team decided to climb the mountain and the other half took a cable car lift to the top. It was an incredible challenge. Climbing a steep mountain, in the desert, with the sun beating down, while its 103 degrees (in the shade) may not have been the wisest thing to do…there were a couple of times when I thought someone might die of heat stroke or heart attack doing this, especially the older guys.20130601-002451.jpg20130601-002510.jpg
