OAT Israel: En Gedi National Park

En Gedi is a 3500 acre nature reserve encompassing two wadis (David, Arugot) and four springs (David, Arugot, Shulamit, En Gedi).  Most of the time the area looks dry and harmless, but flash floods can be perilous. 
A pleasant ramble ended at Shulamit Spring.
The rock hyrax was cute but I was more fascinated with the ibex clambering onto the branches to feed on this bush without breaking the limbs and crashing to the ground.
