MASADA - ISRAEL
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.
