Nahal Pratt Part 4: The End

And, continuing with our hike through Nahal Pratt (aka Wadi Kelt.)

The river. That small clump of houses above is one of the hills of Kfar Adumim.

An interesting textured rock.

Fording the river.

Another funky rock. This one was full of holes and crevices.

At the end of the hike, we came to another major spring.

Flo peeking out of the bushes.

The water wells up from inside and spills out over this concrete structure. The water in the river itself is still somewhat contaminated by sewage, but the spring water is clean.

It's an incredible amount of water coming up from inside the mountain, especially considering we're in a desert.

Nahal Pratt continues all the way down to Yericho (Jericho,), but shabbat was coming in fast, so we had to get going.
