Ein Gedi

After leaving Masada we went to Ein Gedi, an oasis and nature reserve near the Dead Sea.  It was just some hiking and lovely scenery, as well as the chance to see two local animals, the ibex (mountain goat) and Hyrax.. a strange little groundhog-esque creature that our guide termed "rock rabbits".  I wasn't able to get a good photo of the ibex, but the hyrax were cute and curious and everywhere!
What are you looking at?
