|On our bus trip from the southern tip of Israel, through the Sinai Peninsula, in reverse route of the Israelite Exodus from Egypt. We stopped overnight at the base of the traditional Mt. Sinai and at 1:00 A.M. we began our ascent of the mountain on a path that had been roughly hewn out for such pilgrimages. We arrived near the peak at about 4:00 A.M. and waited in an unheated tin hut, with temperatures in the 20's F., for it to get light enough for our final ascent to the summit, for sunrise.|
