The Caucasus Mountains

Spanning 680 miles of Central Asia, from the Black Sea to the Caspian, the Caucasus mountains are neither Europe nor Asia. A land between, beset by bloody wars and tribal feuding, soaked in wine and song.

White, shaggy cloudlets...

White, shaggy cloudlets...

"The day grew hot. White, shaggy cloudlets were flitting rapidly from the snow-clad mountains, giving promise of a thunderstorm; the summit of Mount Mashuk was smoking like a just extinguished torch; grey wisps of cloud were coiling and creeping like snakes around it, arrested in their rapid sweep and, as it were, hooked to its prickly brushwood. The atmosphere was charged with electricity."
