We started off the day with the Mount of Beatitudes. We were the first ones there and it was so peaceful in that area and the grounds are so well kept. It was a great way to start the day.
Our next stop was Tell Hazor which is mentioned several times in the Old Testament. It was burned by Joshua and the ruins of an ancient Canaaanite Palace and worship center have been uncovered.
Next we went to slip and slide over the rough stones of Dan. We arruved at the cultic site where Jeraboam set up an altar with a golden calf to keep the Israelites from going to Jerusalem to worship.
We continued our hike to Abraham's gate which was the gate to Lacish - later renamed Dan. Abraham entered the city when he rescued Lot and his family.
