Tag Archives: Nimrod’s Fortress

To The Keep

I’m a huge Lord of the Rings Fan.  I remember reading The Hobbit way back in 8th grade for a book report, then continuing on to read the trilogy after.  The movies are great, and the books are even better….

Last weekend I felt like I was walking through a Lord of the Rings moment.  We took a road trip up to Mt. Hermon, the tallest mountain in Israel, to explore around Nimrod’s Fortress.  It’s like walking onto the movie set, without the set. The ancient, Middle Ages ruins are just amazing!  I can only imagine what they looked like back in the 13th Century, when it was constructed.

If you ever have the chance to visit Nimrod’s Fortress, I highly suggest it. Here’s a few pictures from the day: (the entire collection can be found on my travel photography website)
