The Jezreel Valley, better known as the Plain of Armageddon

Yes, this is where the final battle described in the Book of Revelation. This picture is from the hill where Elijah faced off against the prophets of Baal. This area is especially interesting not for what will happen, but what has happened, there have been battles fought on this plain from the earliest time of history up to World War I. If the mountain could talk it could tell of us a fascinating history, if not bloody and frightening. Our tour guide also told us that this area is among the most fertile framing areas in the world, that farmers can often produce two separate crops in one season. How and why? I don’t really know and yea, just don’t feel a need to elaborate.
