On our way South we've also made a detour to the Dead Sea.
This was the only big tree that we saw on our way to the Dead sea.
Dead Sea View. This part of it is used for the beauty products production, that's why it is divided into parts with visible borders.

Igor was brave enough to get out of the car and go to the trees with his tripod and camera.
The sandy wind is visible on the background.
To our surprise, in the middle of a desert there was a rest stop with McDonald's restaurant, We were hungry and used this opportunity. The food was no different from our local McDonald's, which was a shame, because Israeli food usually is pretty good.
Those pictures with a blue sky were taken on our way back, on April 14th, 2010.
Oasis in the desert
A monument on the top of a mountain. Those mountains form a crater looking like a surface of the Moon.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so I hope you were able to see the desert through the lens of my camera and realize how big, empty and deadly place it is. The flowers pictured above appear only in the springtime, and don't last long. The desert itself is a rocky, stony and empty space, not suitable for life.
My next posts will include Jordan, Agaba, Jordanian Desert, animals, cities of Israel and more.
