The way down was very muddy and thus very slippery. Stopping on the way down, a quick enactment of Saul falling on his own sword allowed us to check off goal number 2 for this trip. For good measure, a smiting scene was thrown in....
Heading down the wadi, the valley bottom with Beth Sean and the Jordan highlands in background became visible. Finally we were able to find a sunny place with flat rocks for a lunch of hummus and strawberries; it was also an ideal vantage point for spotting the rock hyrax for the bbq later.
As we headed back out, Dr. T was viciously attacked by a bush; A. galantly saved her just before we were about to abandon her to her fate with the voracious local wild hyraxes.
Dr T and Yo with the great view in the background that A and R were able to enjoy while at the Herb Restaurant. Although we failed to find any irises or hyrax bbq, it was still a great day!
