The seventh day of the trip was by far the most intense and active. It began at 3:30am, when we awoke to go to Masada. We got up so early so we could make it to the top in time to see the sunrise. Despite how short the hike was (about an hour), it was the most difficult hike so far because it was so humid and so steep. It turns out that we took the most difficult path to the top, the "snake path." Once we
got to the top the feeling of accomplishment and the magestic sunrise made the hike worth it.
