Desert Hike Day 6: Rain Blesses the Desert

Some might see it as a hindrance, but for our group, rainfall upon this biblical desert was a special experience

By |

Because of the rain we had to change our program. So we went today (Shabbat) into the Ramon Crater. This is a route with many challenges and a beautiful desert landscape.

We set out at 7 o'clock in the rain. A two-hour window of sunshine was suddenly interrupted by another downpour as we reached the Ardon mountain in the center of the Ramon Crater.

We took the opportunity to rest, have some quiet time of prayer and enjoy God's blessing on this dry land. It was chilly, but for our guests from abroad it was a unique experience to see the biblical desert blessed with water.

In the afternoon, we were picked up by a bus and drove down to a desert mountain overlooking the Red Sea town of Eilat. Here we will spend the night and continue with the final leg of our hike.

Despite the rain, we push on…

A well-deserved break.

What a view!
