Sde Boker and Ein Avdat

This morning we visited Sde Boker, a park where David Ben Gurion, one of the founders of Israel, is buried.
Nearby is Ein Avdat, a small desert canyon with a beautiful stream bed.
Ibex live on the cliffs and in the park. Some are unafraid of people. 
David Ben Gurion's grave.
The cliffs at Ein Avdat where very interesting eagles, griffon vultures,
and other vultures are nesting and flying.

Wouldn't you have wanted to go to the high school there that specializes in environmental science? Really special place.
