The Qumran Cave

In 1947 a goat wandered up the side of this cliff being chased by a Shepherd boy. The goat ran into the cave and the boy tossed a rock in to the cave to scare the goat out of it. He heard a clink and the sound of breaking pottery - The "Dead Sea Scrolls" had been discovered.

Today there is a trail up the side of that cliff but it is still a tough climb - It was awesome to clime up and go into the now empty cave.


  1. finding stuff like that is sooooo exciting!!

  2. I find Dorrie Hyroglyphs Extremely Exciting, and I wondered, if Dorrie, ever had a Car-Tush inscribed also,..
