Frozen furls

The stratovolcano rising above the intersection of Turkey, Armenia, and Iran is known locally as Agri Dagi (Turkish, "mountain of pain"). It is more famously remembered as Mt Ararat, associated with the story of Noah's ark (Genesis 8). Getting to the summit flag at nearly 17,000' is a strenuous effort, but the view is worth it. "Little Ararat" (12,877') rises in the distance.
