Some random comments on reddit about Austrian UNDOF peacekeeper patrolling the Golan Heights in 2012 [1280 x 854]
- Dont feel bad. everyone associates israel/mideast with only brutally hot weather. I actually spent some time living in israel and didnt know about the snow up there for a while. I believe israel even has a small ski resort up there. I think the name of the town is hermon.
- Do you think that have an aeron chairlift?
- It's pronounced like "hair-MOAN," not like the name "Herman." But I like the reference.
- The name of the mountain is called Mount Hermon . There is no town or village located on the mountain, but there is a ski resort and a couple of military bases. The mountain is part of a mountain range that is in Lebanon, Syria and Israel. Its highest point is located in Syria. The Israeli part of the mountain was conquered during the Six Day War.
- there is a mt hermon, i think a town up there also
- It snows in Jerusalem once or so a year even.
- I also didn't learn this until I saw this picture.
- I learned yesterday that Greece has a ski resort so don't feel bad.
- At least a third of Greece gets snow coverage during winter.
- Their best honey player is Wayne Goatski
- Jerusalem also usually gets snow once every other year or so.
- Was snowed in during the 2013 Jerusalem snowstorm, can confirm.
- How much snow does it take to shut down Jerusalem? Can't imagine much.
- I thought it was just mountainous, not snowy.
- Neither did the guy in the pic.
- Not the kind of scenery one would normally associate with the Middle East, great shot!
- Everyone always thinks of deserts, but the climate of the Levant (most of Israel, Lebanon, Syria, and parts of Turkey) is Mediterranean. It's much like that of Spain, Italy, or Southern France. Read more comments
