View looking east at the Lower Jordan River (between the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea).

The Lower Jordan River is the 65 mi. [105 km.] portion of the Rift Valley that stretches from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea. Because of its windy nature its actual length is about 135 mi. [215 km.] — note the twists in this photo.

Prior to all of these diversionary usages the Jordan was about 100 ft. [30 m.] wide and 3 to 10 ft. [1 to 3 m.] deep — swelling in the floods of spring to almost a mile [1.6 km.] in places.
