Garden of Eden November 2009
The image above was taken on 25th November 2009 looking down on to the Garden of Eden from the road between Aiha and Kfar Qouf. Our first impression was not what we expected to see having already extensively documented the area from Google satellite images, there was no water in the southern basin (in the foreground) also the survey area was much larger than anticipated. From this photo point the village of Kfar Qouf is over 1 mile away.
