Preparation for the Wall

Packing up Barranco Camp 1.jpg

The morning frost is heavy on Barranco Camp. Ice is growing inside my water bottle.

Mohammad and Ambrose discuss how to tie walking sticks into a daypack. Hands need to be free for scrambling.

Karen and Bryan contemplate the route up and over the Barranco Wall. The “Wall” is only an 850 foot obstacle, but it looks like more. No technical experience is needed. Just a little courage. And lots of coffee.

For more on the Barranco Wall, see our post here.

Had a little traffic on the Wall, but everybody made it up safely.

My regular summer work is in Israel-Palestine. If you are a pastor, church leader, or educator who is interested in leading a trip to the lands of the Bible, let me hear from you. We partner with faith-based groups to craft and deliver academic experiences. Leaders receive the same perks that other agencies offer, at competitive prices, and without the self-serving interests that often derail pilgrim priorities.
