Continuing along the Dead Sea

Continuing our hike through the hills over the Dead Sea, we reached the edge of the cliffs and got a fantastic view of the northern shore.

Looking over the Dead Sea and Arava Valley

The coast looked a bit like the California Coastline near Big Sur, with the cliffs of the coastal range diving into the Pacific Ocean. Of course, those cliffs are alive with grass and flowers, whereas these cliffs are rocky and dead. But if you backlight them with the sun, they become profiled, and you can almost picture the California Coast.

And went away just as fast.
