Climbing Mt. Sinai

Great experience -- not too bad a hike up, a gentle winding trail capped by a 750 step (stacked stones) ascent -- first shots are at 3:30 A.M., made it up to the top around 6:00 A.M. for the spectacular sunrise. Had more fun on the way down with the 3800 "stairs of redemption" as they are thought to be the route of Moses (although some claim another nearby peak to be the biblical Sinai).
