Summer’s First Sunset — Uncle Tree’s House

Spring-like temperatures stole the show on this first day of Summer. The average temperature for June 21 is 86°, but the 68° we reached today is plainly ass-backwards. The Summertime Blues shall have to wait, since Spring came so unfashionably late. Photographs by Uncle Tree “Stay safe, folks!” Keith ▼

Mount Ararat

The reason why this is here is that Windows 10 suggested I might like a mountain theme for my Screenm so I followed the link to find mount Ararat classified under “Mountain ”

I went over to scoop up information – but Edge won’t allow for that, it allows downloads and saving but I wanted the “html” so I had to open in Chrome to inspect and get the credentials.

Mount Ararat (/ˈærəˌræt/ ARR-ə-rat;[4] Turkish: Ağrı Dağı; Armenian: Մասիս, Masis and Արարատ, Ararat) is a snow-capped and dormant compound volcano in the extreme east of Turkey. It consists of two major volcanic cones: Greater Ararat, the highest peak in Turkey and the Armenian plateau with an elevation of 5,137 m (16,854 ft); and Little Ararat, with an elevation of 3,896 m (12,782 ft).[5] The Ararat massif is about 35 km (22 mi) wide at ground base.[6]

The first efforts to reach Ararat’s summit were made in the Middle Ages. However, it was not until 1829 when Friedrich Parrot and Khachatur Abovian, accompanied by four others, made the first recorded ascent
