A day-trip in the Judean hills

TRAVEL: Ancient springs and stunning vistas: A desert day trip just outside Jerusalem. Biblical history and vibrant nature abound in the Judean hills, where visitors can bathe in an ancient oasis and walk in the footsteps of the Good Samaritan (AVIVA AND SHMUEL BAR-AM, Times of Israel). Be aware that these sites are on the West Bank, with the attendant political complications and controversy.
