View of King Herod's magnificent mountain palaceLeft Jerusalem early morning for the one hour drive to the Dead Sea as sun rises in the east over the Moabite mountains of Jordan. The early start - 4 am !! allowed us to walk up the winding path called the Snake Path for about an hour till we reached the Masada palace fortress summit and tour in the cooler hours of the day ,before heading to a great breakfast at the nearby kibbutz of Ein Gedi and their well deserved breakfast.
