|The cable car enroute to the top of the "mesa," taken from the other cable car which went down as the other came up. In the center left is the remains of one of the several Roman camps that surrounded Masada during the siege.
|Arlene with Madeleine, our guide for the Jerusalem-Masada portion of our trip. Just a couple of girls with roots in Leeds, England!
|The remains of one of the many storage areas on top of Masada.
