The Lowest Place on Earth

As we rode in the West Bank towards the Allenby Bridge for the crossing back into Jordan, we got a brief glimpse of the northern end of the Dead Sea. The Sea is 1,385 feet below sea level.

Hank told us that recent dry weather has caused the Sea to shrink, so it now consists of three smaller lakes, with dry ground between them.

Who knew?
