Holy Land - Day 7

The Dead Sea
Our hotel
Unfortunately, after we got home, all of our Dead Sea photos and videos were accidentally deleted.  Except for this one that LV took of his feet in the Dead Sea.  I will say, it was an amazing experience floating in that water.  So much fun!

We had the choice of a hike or a visit to Masada.  It was recommended that anyone who was afraid of heights or couldn't do a strenuous hike, head to Masada.  LV and D opted to hike En Gedi with H.

Maybe it was a cave like this that David hid in from King Saul
LM asked to go to Masada, so I went with him

After our visit to Masada, our group had a teaching at the En Gedi trail head.

After we picked up the En Gedi hikers, we were off to a wilderness experience.  On our way we passed by numerous Bedouin communities alongside the highway.

At the wilderness experience we got to ride camels!
LV is in front on the front camel, D and H are there in the middle.  LM was riding with me.

When we arrived at Abraham's tent, he came out to greet us with water to wash our hands.

After all of the guests arrived (via camel), we enjoyed a large, tasty dinner.

Then we were off to our hotel in Jerusalem.
