There is no need to travel more than 15 minutes from Beit Shemesh to find stunningly beautiful open countryside. I headed out this past Friday afternoon to Nachal Machasia (to the right of the road between Beit Shemesh and Nes Harim).
The rugged storm-darkened skies brought out dramatic contrasts and depth of the landscape.
In my two hour stroll, the only other person I saw was a lone shepherd tending his flock.
