  Ruins on top of Mountain
by Paul2001

This photo gives you a general feel of what the mountaintop of Masada looks like from above. One has to be very patient while touring the site as the fascinating mosaics are scattered about quite abit. The site is also full of tour groups that crowd some of the remains of ruins.
You can also see the overcast that occured during my visit. Oddly enough although Masada is in the desert, this was only one of two days in which I was rained upon during my 34 day tour of the Middle East.
