Walking in the footsteps of Jesus

Today we walked in the footsteps of Jesus along the Jesus trail.

The Jesus Trail is a 65-kilometer hiking trail in the Galilee region of Israel. It connects important sites from the life of Jesus and other historical and religious sites. It is a way  for travellers and pilgrims to experience the steps of Jesus in an authentic, adventurous and educational manner by hiking through the rugged and beautiful landscape of the Galilee in Israel.

Today we started in Cana and walked for several hours. We passed pastoral scenes, livestock and military vehicles and finished with a stroll down a Roman road.

We finished the day with a visit to Gan Hoshlosha. Some believe Gan Hashlosha is the location of the garden of Eden. It has beautiful spring fed pools shaded by lush palm trees and we took full advantage of the beautiful location and enjoyed some down time in the water.

Tomorrow we will be continuing our walk along the Jesus Trail and descending Mount Arbel (see the photo above). It will be another day of expanding our horizons and testing our limits.
