That drive up the mountains past the rusted burned out makeshift armored vehicles from '47 is what really caught my eye. Soldiers view things differently as well.
I believe you on that. There is definitely some burned out armor in Israel.
We were at an outpost in the Golan Heights looking out over Syria, the UN corridor and Lebanon. Artists had used burned out armored vehicles to make some interesting metal animal artwork.
I envy you. In probably six trips there over 15 years, I never saw an Ibex.
Sometimes a person just gets lucky. I was fortunate. This was my second time to Israel. We saw the ibex at En Gedi.
The luckiest I ever got was on a cruise. One port of call was Belize. We rafted through a cave. As we were loading the bus to leave, a small jaguar, maybe 100 pounds crossed the road 30 yards from us. The guide said he sees a couple jaguar's a year. Normally while driving at night, but this was the first he had seen in this area, and hardly ever during daylight. Seeing the jaguar was the highlight of that cruise for me. Probably the only one I will ever see in the wild.
