In the North part of the country just North West of the Galilee Lake, Mount Azmon was our daily hike in a beautiful March weather.
The Mountain is an elevation standing high above the surrounding area with small summit area, steep slopes and local relief of 300m or more.
Our group bus picked us up at 6:30 AM and we started the hike around 8AM just after having breakfast at the starting point, it was nice to meet the group again get the late updates, they all are curious about our “crazy” RV trips….”is the trailer yours?”” how do you know where to go?” “where do you leave it?” and so on and on, but we are happy to share our outstanding trips with them and get them “Jealous”…
What seems natural in one place is unheard in another,but if you keep an open mind and think out of the box the world will open and you can experience and learn interesting things from different cultures.
The beginning point was from a top of one mountain and crossed a valley climbing to wards the pick of Mt. Azmon, the path took us through beautiful fields and old olive groves,
Some trees are hundred years old , I learned that it is difficult to tell the age of an Olive because when it get’s old the trunk begins to split and no “circles” are created to help guessing the tree age.
The scenery was breath taking, the Spring was all over the place and you could get drunk from the smells,I know –NO waterfalls-Unfortunately…they are waiting for us in Missouri&Arkansas …..
Here are some more pictures from the hike showing our small but beautiful country (Believe it or not but Smaller than the Michigan Lake)….
At the end of the trip we bought ourselves a treat – small local made sweet cookies with honey and nuts…..so good tasty and fattening….
I think this might be our last trip before we whit the road to wards our 2014 RV trip in the US.
See you guys,I cant’ wait.
