Photo of the Week – Nahal Saar

Along with limestone, dolomite, sandstone and granite, there is also basalt in the north of Israel, an area of extinct volcanoes. Saar Falls is a waterfall that cascades into Nahal Saar in the winter rainy season. The nahal (stream bed) is the divide between the basalt of the Golan and the limestone of the Hermon.
