View looking east at a portion of the Jordan River in the area between the south end of the Sea of Galilee and Beth Shan.
Note the dense vegetation on both sides of the river. This actually was more extensive in ancient times and was covered with a dense thicket of vegetation including poplars, tamarisks, willows, cane and reed. It was a dangerous area for robbers, lions, leopards and jackals lurked in its cover.
