Desert Waterfall Mud Bath Time in Israel's Rachaf Canyon
Updated: May 20
The Prophet Isaiah wrote 2700 years ago that "waters shall break out in the wilderness and
streams in the desert. And the parched land shall become a pool."
I invite you all to check out this awesome video of the Rachaf stream from yesterday. This canyon, located in the southern Judean desert, is one of the most fun hikes in Israel, especially when there is water (after rains) - though one must be careful not to get caught in flash floods. For those into adventure sports, this can be tons of fun.
One can head down the canyon through numerous pools and rappel down several waterfalls (the only way to navigate the entire thing). The video shows one of the pools/waterfalls after the strange rains we had on Wednesday.
