Hexagon Pool

Last weekend we took advantage of a very useful hint and payed a visit to a Hexagon Pool (also known as "Meshushim Pool") in Yehudiya Forest park.

This pool besides being one of the most beautiful places I've seen, is a unique geological phenomenon. The wall of the pool consists of hexagonal basalt pillars, which solidified when the lava cooled down after the volcanic eruptions in the Golan.

Many springs run into Hameshushim stream that fills the pool, and its current is strong year-round.

The pictures from the trip may be found @ KodakGallery :)
