You Haven't Seen This Mushroom Yet
Timna Park is a beautiful majestic desert in the south of Israel, about 25 kilometres north of Eilat. It is home to ancient copper mines. These mines and mining shafts, as well as remains of smelting furnaces, can be seen throughout the park. Before touring the park, take some time to watch the multimedia presentation at the entrance.

The park covers approximately 15 thousand acres, hence getting around by car is advisable. While we were there, we bumped into a family of three adults and two children who underestimated the vastness of the park. They were intending to get around by foot! We ended up giving them a lift.

The site that attracted my attention was the Mushroom. It is a unique rock sculpture created as a result of erosion. You'll also get the opportunity to fill bottles with coloured sand - an activity enjoyed by both the children and the adults in our group.
