INT Day 38 - Finish

I was up and at it by 6, one short but steep climb. One longer but easier
climb. Nice canyon and nice ridge walking. Great views down to the Red Sea
and Eilat and then I was plummeting downhill and at the end. The trail ends
at the Red Sea but ridiculously finishes at a Nature Reserve which is
fenced off so you can't actually dip your toes in the water without paying
the entrance fee. That's really dumb!! It was too early to even get in
although I wouldn't have paid out of principle and I walked about a
kilometer North and dipped my toes in for free!!

I'll end the journal here although I will write up a big summary entry and
also an entry on how to hike the Negev without caching water. I've got a
couple days before I fly home. I'm looking forward to being back in America
even though it was a great trip in Israel.

I owe a big thanks to the thru hikers I met in the US and hooked me up In
Israel and made me feel at home. Asaf who hosted me in Mitzpe, Daniel who
hosted me in Jerusalem and of course Noam and Orna who hosted me countless
times, met me for the Dead Sea, researched anything I needed along the way
and just made my trip a million times better.
