By the time we reached the turning point down into the valley, the sun was just beginning to peek over the horizon.
In only a few hours, we had seen the sunrise and a full moon, climbed to the top of a desert mountain, and experienced one of the most spectacular views in the Negev.
We climbed over large rocks, past splashes of greenery that always grow in the comparatively water-rich world of desert valleys
I collapsed into our car, tired but totally exhilarated. Our hike through Nahal Azgad and Nahal Ashlim had been a fun, beautiful, and challenging adventure.
We climbed up sand-colored terrain, reaching higher ground just as the sun began to peek over the mountains in the distance.
