    Wild goats by Mizpe Ramon

    by markrabinovich Written Jan 2, 2009

    Mizpe Ramon is a small settlement on the road 40 leading down from Beer Sheva to the Eilat Bay. This road makes a good alternative to famous road 90 (Arava Highway) but with less traffic and more views. For the most magnificent of them you need not even get too far off the road. The vista point is on the left shoulder just after you pass the entrance to Mizpe Ramon Visitors Center on your way from Beer Sheva.
    This is probably the best place to have a look on the entire Ramon Crater. You have also a good chance not to be alone there. Usually, a small herd of wild goats will come to welcome you. See the pictures.

    Ammonite Trail

    Israel National Trail and Ammonite Trail meet

    The Ammonite Trail is just south of Mitzpe Ramon, on the right side of the road (just keep a lookout for the sign after you leave the confines of the Maktesh). This is an area of an ancient seabed and as the weather wears away layers of rock, sand and debris you can often find denizens of the seabed jutting out of the mountain side.
    The first picture shows where signpost where the Israel National Trail meets the Ammonite Trail in the middle of the desert.
    The second photo shows the markings on rocks that you will find all along the trails. The Blue/Orange/White stripes denote the National Trail. The Red/Green/White show two trails, the Red and the White where they meet.
    The third picture is Malena whom we brought back alive from her visit to our desert.
    The fourth picture shows the trail itself, just a clear path in the desert.
    The last photo shows Malena, Gil and Gabi searching the rock face for Ammonite fossils.

    Ein Avdat Canyon 1

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Martin leads the way up the Ein Avdat canyon.

    Take the trail up the canyon at Ein Avdat. A spectacular walk follows the river, throught this incredible canyon. The scenery is stunning even if caught in a desert storm as we were.

    The trail is part of a National park.

    An Ibex

    Keep a lookout for the local fauna and flora. We were lucky and saw many Ibexes, dragonflies and frogs. We also saw some interesting plants, wild capers being just one of them.
