Day Ten - March 10th, 2012

Traveled to the top of Israel today and visited the ruins of a few ancient civilization.  Mount Herman is snow covered most of the year because of its high elevation.  The town in the foreground is Kiryat Shmona.

 

I visited Tel Hazor and Tel Dan. The city of Dan was named after the tribe of Dan.  Its springs are the main source of the Jordan River and are feed by the snow and rains on Mount Herman.

 

This place was a Canaanite city that was taken by the tribe of Dan.  This tribe found the Philistines to difficult a challenge and therefore headed north to conquer the land that was called Laish. (Judges 18:27-29)

 

Finished up the day photographing the Greek Orthodox Church of the Twelve Apostles on the shore of the Galilee

Tomorrow I travel to Jerusalem via Caesarea
