One of the best seasons to travel in Israel is at spring and spring is defiantly here,it is all green and blooming after the rainy days,the weather is just right for hiking .

We joined our hiking group and hiked 2 days in the North part of Israel called Galil .

On the first day we hiked  Nahal Kesiv  starting at 0930 till 1730 covering beautiful grounds and crossing the streams till the last look out towards an ancient Castle named Monfort Crusade Castel http://www.biblewalks.com/Sites/Montfort.html

We all got up early for the breakfast and warmed up before starting our second long day with a cooler weather but still good and crispy.

Some were a little sore and tired after the hike and the dance before hitting the sack but after a mile or 2 it was alright.
