Kidron Valley

Down to the Kidron Valley
Today we will be descending down past the ruins of the City of David, to the mysterious Kidron Valley. Some believe that all the enemies of Israel since the beginning of time shall be judged here in the Kidron Valley.

We meet a couple from Australia who are also walking down the stairs. These two are looking for the Warren Shaft where is located the water supply for the ancient City of David.

In the pic below, Little Mavicita captures what the City of David looks like at the present time.

At the bottom of the Kidron Valley, we find the stone stairs that descend from the valley floor down to a doorway to the Warren Shaft. Little Mavicita captures a pic looking thru the doorway.

We meet up with the Australian couple who just walked thru the dark of Hezekiah's Tunnel and are now reading the historic sign about the Pool of Saloam.
