The Judean Desert–Nachal Og

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.

Most of the year these are bone dry riverbeds.  For brief moments in the winter, they become raging rivers.

The Israeli parks authority prepares marked hiking trails, creating “safe” paths and, in this case, pounding climbing supports into the rock.  Safe is relative, each such trail has a difficulty rating.  Climbing walls with narrow metal supports, fun but challenging.

Imagine when all the hills and valleys straighten out to make room for all the Jews who will finally come Home! There will be plenty of land to build on.
