Thought you might like this picture . . . not sure of the type of bird. Its sheer strength and stature just struck me when I saw the pic . . . and because I had a zoom and was up 1400 feet the bird appears so close.
Tricia Short and Melinda Kirkland (Qumran National Park) and two great bus shepherds, Mike and Katie Beitler (near David Waterfall, En Gedi) who prove daily that Job is not the only one who had patience!
As our group made its way in the Tunnel Tour, along the full length of the Wall—a total of 1500 feet— bits of archaeology from the first century came into view. Descending some steps revealed a massive stone that represents part of the “master course” of stones.
One of these stones measures forty-four feet long, ten feet high, and more than twelve feet deep. Weighing in at 570 tons, it remains the largest of its kind in the Middle East. Every first-timer’s jaw drops when he or she sees it.
