Yesterday I had the pleasure of guiding the Huebner family from Pittsburgh. We started the day with a hike the Nahal Tekoa to the Haritun Cave. Next we did a tour of Herodion. We then headed to Jerusalem for Falafel followed by a visit to Kever Rachel. We ended the day on top of the Mt. of Olives for a spectacular view of the Jerusalem at sunset.
The weather was great for touring as well as for photography. I got a lot of really great shots that you can see on my Instagram page.
This shot is from atop Herodion, a mountain-top palace built by King Herod in the desert near Tekoa. The visibility was great and we were able to see across the entire Judean Desert until the Dead Sea as well as the mountains of Ammon in the distance!
