Photographer's Note

You liked my yesterday post so here another picture with the view of Caucasus mountains.

Stepantsminda was named after a Georgian Orthodox monk named Stephan, who constructed a hermitage at this location on what later became the Georgian Military Road. The town is located along the banks of the Terek River, 157 kilometers to the north of Tbilisi at an elevation of 1,740 meters above sea level.The town is dominated by large mountains on all sides. The most notable mountain of the region, Mount Kazbek, lies immediately to the west of town. The second most prominent peak, Mt. Shani, rises to an elevation of 4,451 meters.
Mt. Shani is on the international border between Georgia and Ingushetia, Russia.
