On the outside, the stone was white and chalky. Rubbing the rock brought back memories of erasing the blackboard with my hands as a child. The white stone simply dissolved into a cloud of dust at the touch.
Special Feature: Cave
Nahal Tekoa and the Haritoun Cave
At the Haritoun Cave Trail in Nahal Tekoa, we escaped from the noise of everyday life and discovered a cross between a playground and a monastery. Between the uniquely beautiful scenery and fun rock formations, this little trail is well worth exploring.
Midras Ruins Trail – Park Adulam
In many places around the country, there are networks of underground caves that you can hike through. And some that you can merely slither through.
Ma’arat HaTeumim – Twins Cave Trail
Just for fun, it seemed like now was a good time to turn off our flashlights and see what the cave was really like. It was utterly and completely black. The darkness was palpable.
Sweet and Simple in Nes Harim – Beit Itab
In those early morning hours, the sun made the wild wheat and dry flower stalks look more like woven gold. Under the shadow of trees, we began to notice how pretty the summer landscape really was when it was out of the harsh midday light.
