A Travellerspoint blog

Day 6 - The Tabernacle, and Timna Valley

Hello all - wanting to get this published and get all caught up for dinner, so sorry if I'm brief - but I know you mainly care about the pictures anyway haha!

Today we went to the Timna Valley just north of Eilat. King Soloman had his copper mines there, and the whole area is very beautiful with many cliff formations, including the Mushroom, Solomon's Pillar, and one I thought looked like a T-Rex - you can decide which is which.

But more importantly to us, there was a scale reproduction of the Tabernacle which the Children of Israel carried with them when they wandered in the wilderness. Our local guide was very knowledgeable and interesting, and seeing it to scale is eye opening to me at the least, as it is not what I had expected or pictured in my mind.

I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking, and with that, this blog is all caught up whew - so as we move on to the holy city of Jerusalem tomorrow, you can move forward as we do.
