Riding Israel: The Upper Galilee
In our overview of riding in Israel, and after we have surveyed the Western Galilee in our last article, we will now continue riding the North of the country, this time at the region called the Upper Galilee.
Above is a map of the North of Israel (from Wikipedia), including part of the Upper Galilee. It is incomplete, though, missing a small northern region called "The Galilee Finger", a narrow piece of land that points North, incrusted in Lebanon, and includes the towns of Kiryat Shemona and Metula.
Riding Israel: The Western Galilee
Today we are beginning a new series of posts in this blog, named "Riding Israel". During the next months I will be posting now and then about different areas of Israel that are worth riding, talking about specific places, specific roads, and itineraries.
We will begin by describing a little of the Western Galilee district, in the north of the country.
