falafel, shawarma, or pizza – day 4.1

First off, this is post #100 to this blog!  I started November 2008 and it’s been really fun so far.  This is probably the first non-Facebook online presence I’ve maintained for over a year, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.  Now back to our regularly scheduled programming already in progress…

After our morning hike down south, we started making our way north.  First, we made a stop at the Ramon Crater (מכתש רמון‎), which is a massive valley formed by erosion of the land.  Then we made a stop for lunch in Mitzpe Ramon (מִצְפֵּה רָמוֹן‎), a small town near the crater.  Our at the rest stop were falafel, shawarma, or pizza.  In fact, those were the choices at most of the rest stops.  Hence the name of this series of posts.

Our next hike started with a camel ride originating near Avdat.  The camel saddles were incredibly uncomfortable, but it was worth doing once.  In my lifetime.  The remaining 2 hours or so of the hike were much better.  Enjoy the photos below.
