Israel Tour–Day 1

Today marked the official start of our tour.  Great stuff.

First stop.  Beer’sheva.  Also known as Beer’sheba.  Home of Abraham.  10,000 year old ruins.

Later in the day, the Desert of Zin.  Two hikes.  Both amazing.  The wilderness is the desert.   It is not a lush forest.  Quite the canyon.

5 minutes of total silence with tour group at the bottom of the canyon, near a broom bush, near a cave.  See 1 Kings 19 for parallel.
