Masada & Dead Sea

We woke up at 4am to hike up Masada. This first pic is of hundreds of us walking up the Snake Path just before sunrise.
Masada is supposed to have the greatest sunrises in the world but unfortunately, due to the sand storm the day before combined with the morning "fog", it was nothing like it should have been.
Then we took a short drive over to the Dead Sea. I love seeing everyone experience this for the first time!

After a fun day at the beach, we drove back up north to our final destination for the next 5 nights, Jerusalem. We went to a bar b q at Divon's house. Divon is the CEO of Sachlav, the program we were on. He invites 2 groups (over 80 people) into his home every week so they can see what true Israeli hospitality is. His whole family (9 kids) helps prepare the dinner and they are wonderful hosts. Divon and his family are one of the main reasons I love the Sachlav company. This is a photo of his backyard view. Can you imagine?!
