On Wed, Dec 10th, I did a sunrise hike up to the top of Masada, the fortress and palace of King Herod. It was a killer hike to the top but the views were totally worth it! After Masada, we drove to Ein Gedi, a nature preserve with wildlife and waterfalls! Then we made our way to the Dead Sea where I floated and got all muddy. You know the things that us tourists do! It was a fantastic day with warm sunny weather!!
