Hezekiah's Tunnel

2.15.2010
On Monday for our field trip we went to the City of David. We looked at Area G, and walked through Hezekiah's Tunnel. I loved it! It was so fun! Hezekiah's tunnel is a tunnel dug from the Gihon Springs to the Pools of Siloam. The water at some spots was up to about mid thigh but most parts it was up to my mid- or upper calf. I was amazed at how level the ground was. I had to duck down sometimes because the tunnel was short but also at some points the tunnel was really tall. Really tall.

While we were there we looked out at the city and noticed how the houses would have been built cascading downward. We talked about how it would have been very easy for David to see Bathsheba. It was also neat to talk about how this was the city that Nephi had to sneak into to go to Laban's house.
