Continuing in the best of The Muqata's tradition of bringing you the latest and greatest sights of Eretz Yisrael, I accompanied my daughter and her class yesterday on a tiyul to the Lower Galilee region, right below The Gilboa Mountain range. Geographically (geologically?), the Gilboa mountains are northern part of the Shomron Mountain range.
They always need parents to join these trips as medics or armed escorts... My wife and daughter convinced me on Thursday that I should really make an extra effort to go. After all, its much more important than blogging...right?
Hiking through Israel during the late winter offers a wonderful view of nature and springtime's blooming of kalaniyot and other flowers. Nachal Yitzpor is a gently sloping, rock and wildflower filled valley that's a perfect hike for 4rth graders.
We somehow managed to get ourselves back to the road, and we entertained ourslves on the bus ride back telling scary stories. My daughter and her class had a great time despite the rain...
Enjoy the pictures and get ready for Rosh Chodesh Adar... (tonight)
