Day Eight - March 8th, 2012
Slept once again in the Ein Gedi Youth Hostel on the shores of the Dead Sea. Made a morning Climb into David’s Falls to capture the cascades of water.
David and his men stayed in Ein Gedi and certainly enjoyed the fresh water falling from the Desert plateau above. Young boys couldn't help themselves and jump in fully clothed in one of falls about half way up.
I loved the shoreline at this point of the Dead Sea. This is near the north end of this body of water.
Just a few miles further north before leaving the Dead Sea area I stopped in to capture the Qumran Caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.
This is the actual cave where a shepherd boy when looking for his sheep discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls. Not knowing it's value, he asked a cobbler to make some sandals from the Leather that the Old Testament text was written on.
