Mount Aratat in Turkey, viewed from Armenia. The schenery was absolutely mindblowingly good on this trip and we were not disappointed with our excellent views of Mount Ararat, just inside the Turkey border. Mount Ararat is made up of two dormant volcano cones, Greater Ararat and Little Ararat. The highest point being at over 16,000 feet. It is said to be the resting place of Noah's Ark after the great Genesis flood.
