Swimming where David Swam

Just a quick entry. Here are the waters of En Gedi. This is a natural spring that flows into the Dead Sea. It is near where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. It is a place where King David came to swim. Pretty amazing to have this Oasis in the middle of the blazing desert. That is my dad being drenched by the waterfall coming down from the spring. Nephi and Lehi surely swam or at least stopped for water here when they left Jerusalem. It is fresh water and in the desert water is everything. Surely they knew of it and drank from it on their way out.
