Negev Tour 8: Inside Canyon Ada

And now for my final post of Machon Meir's Chanukkah Negev adventure:

Negev Tour 7: Canyon Ada

Later came a ladder.
Strange shapes in the rock. Even going through single file was pretty tough here.
Hmmm... how am I gonna fit my belly through this?

And finally, the canyon opens up to the acacia-studded plains.

Made it back to the busses before sunset for some lunch.
The sun sets behind the mountains of the Negev.
Some guys daven Mincha (afternoon prayers.)
Now for a quick cleanup and back on the busses. It's about three hours' drive to get back to Jerusalem. And that pretty much wraps up the Machon Meir Chanukkah Tiyul to the Negev.
