Israel is beautiful in the spring. So many flowers are in bloom and everything else is lush green. Spring doesn't last long, but when it's here it is marvelous.
When you tour the region of Mount Gilboa you walk in bible land. This is where King Saul, Israel’s first monarch, led a charge against the Philistines.This time of the year, the king of flowers, Irus Gilboa is usually in bloom as well. Sadly we could not find any in our recent tour of the region - but this is what it looks like.
As you tour the mountain you see the west bank from one side and the Beit Shean valley on the other side.
The views are simply breathtaking.
Plan to spend a few hours on this winding mountain top road as there are many beautiful spots to stop and soak in the views.
