Armenian landscape
Armenia is a region of extinct volcanoes and rugged mountains. It has an average altitude of 5,900 ft (1,800 m). Many peaks exceed 10,000 ft (3,048 m); perpetually snowcapped Mt. Aragats (13,418 ft/4,090 m) is the highest point in Armenia. Even though Mt. Ararat is located in Turkey, this famous mountain dominates the skyline of the southern part of Armenia and has a profound influence on the Armenians' national self-identity; "and on the seventeeth day of the seventh month the ark [Noah's] came to rest on the mountains of Ararat" Genesis 8:4 NIV. The photo on the right was taken in mid--July; notice the snow cover even during the hot summer months.
