MASADA - ISRAEL

 MASADA
JUDAEAN DESERT OVERLOOKING THE DEAD SEA, ISRAEL

Masada in a word.  Amazing.  Wow.  What a construction achievement in ancient times.  To build this fortress  around 30BC high atop the hill overlooking the Dead Sea is remarkable.  King Herod was truly a Master Builder on the highest level.  We took the cable car straight up the mountain while others hiked on a fairly cool day in the Judean Desert.  Once at the top, we were stunned by the awesome views, mosaic floors, heating system and building of water wells and plumbing.
