Soon I'll be posting tips about a wonderful full day road trip that Martin (Martin_S), his wife Zohara and I took thru the Southern District, including sights like the Big Makhtesh, Mount Sodom and a quick stop at the Dead Sea.

"VT can't get any lower"

Yep folks, VT got to a new low...as we took this picture at the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth.

    Makhtesh = erosion cirque, soft chalk and sandstone are eroded by water, wadi (stream bed) can still be seen. Hard limestone/dolomite collapses forming crater-like valley.
