Bouldering in Haifa

I've put online one more recent set of pictures. I've taken Michael to bouldering (at XPark in Haifa -- "kir Yoav") and it seems that we'll be doing it more. He enjoys it enough to get back even with sore hands and fingers.

Desert @ full moon

So it did happen: I could not resist the temptation and ran official race which was held in the Dead Sea area. It was a 30K night run in the beautiful desert with landscapes illuminated by the full moon.
Many runners still used headlights, while others, including me, enjoyed the natural moonlit surroundings. I did not really "race" it -- the purpose was to enjoy it as much as possible.

The group of fast runners even honoured my tradition of getting lost on the trails and of course I've followed them, but not the whole way -- I am not the fastest. My route from garmin can be found at MotioneBased.

Nice video from the event can be found at flix.

Vacation in Israel, May 2008

We had an amaizing vacation during 17->25 May with our guests from Moscow, pictures from the trip are at Kodak site. We covered several places in Israel during this week: Qumeran caves, Ein Gedi streams, Dead Sea, Rosh HaNikra grottos, Eilat, Red Sea and Red Canyon... Every place is beautiful by its own way

Rosh HaNikra trip (May 10)

We had visited Rosh HaNikra for the first time on the weekend of the 10th of May. The weather was just perfect -- sunny but not hot. There were plenty of hyrax families enjoying themselves on the rocks besides the entrance to the grottoes. The pictures are @ KodakGallery.

Nahal Taninim (Crocodile stream)

There are no more crocodiles on this stream nowadays, but there were plenty of birds, beautiful beach, horses, gees and nature all around! Have a look at few other pictures.

"Gilboa March" - 20K!!!

Last Saturday I somehow convinced Vitaly and Michael to join me for 20K scenic walk. It was a nice walk but we had a bit late start -- 9:00, so we have finished it at 14:40 instead of the predefined "by 14:00", which was a disappointment for Michael -- no entertainment in the end :(...

Pictures from the event are at KodakGallery.

The School Trip, March 28

New trip - new pictures

This time it was an organized event called "Zaadat Yokneam" near our home on the 8th of March. Just two of us (me and Michael) participated in the whole process - we walked the longer 11km trail, while Vitaly joined us at the finish line for the entertainment part.

The pictures are available at KodakGallery
