March 28, 2007: Qumran, Group Photo
We went to Qumran today at 7 am and spent half the day climbing around caves. It was very interesting, but a bit more taxing than the hike up Masada and I had a great time, but didn't feel awake till about 10 am. Ben, our trip coordinator, almost fell down a hill, but managed to catch himself after sliding about 20 feet and losing his hat. Past trips to Qumran were plagued by killer bees and mud slides, so we were quite lucky. Of course, Qumran is famous as the site of where the Dead Sea scrolls were found.
