Southern Israel has some incredible hiking and touring spots. Midbar Yehuda, the Judean Desert, has astounding biblical level views. Some friends of mine from work went on a tour, here’s a few incredible pictures they shared with me. This is Nachal Og…
What’s incredible is the scope and beauty of the Land of Israel. And hour and a half north and it’s lush farmland, an hour and a half west and it’s coast and sea, and yet hear is start desert.

Not a short drop!
What incredible views. As well, what biblical history!
Sorry I wasn’t there myself!
