Desert Zin, Negev, Israel

The southern part of Israel is a desert – the Negev Desert. Towards the north of the Negev, is the Zin Desert located. The name comes from the Nahal (stream) Zin. The Avdat spring which created a deep canyon feeds the Nahal Zin. In the midst of the desert the little stream meanders like a large green snake.
