Lake, mountain, snow



It takes a too rare trip to the Galil to remind me that my Tel Aviv rooftop is not the only perch in the country. This was taken today at Agmon Hahula a reflooded section of the drained Hula marsh. Snowpeaked Mount Hermon (only 7% of which is controlled by Israel said our guide) is in the distance. We saw thousands of cranes gobbling peanuts especially grown for them in a nearby field but the birds on the lake are mallards.
