Israel 7 - In the Desert

It was really quite surprising how close the desert is to Jerusalem. Seems to be popular with monks and other people wanting quiet or to be on their own. Lovely pictures, but I'm not sure I'd like to live there...

Monks lived in these caves...

One of the caves they stored scrolls in at Qumeran.
