Rosh Hanikra

On Friday we drove up to the northern border of Israel. At the spot where Israel, Lebanon, and the Mediterranean sea meet, there's a park call Rosh Hanikra. This park has a cable car (the steepest in the world according to the brochure) that allows you to descend to sea level and check out railroad tunnels that were built along the shore by the British in the early 1940s. This is the view on the way down:

On this site, there are also a number of sea caves that you can walk into and watch the waves break inside them. The day we visited had very big waves so some of the viewing areas were closed. Here's the inside of one of them:

Finally, there's a cool rock formation that looks like a large white elephant. Here's some white guy in front of the elephant rock:

Oh yeah, almost's the mandatory stand-on-both-sides-of-the-border photo:
