My only concern has been that the weather be sufficiently clear for us to see (and for me to photograph) the Gergeti Trinity Church perched on a remote mountain top, and the 5,000 metre high, snow-cevered Mt Kazbek. Our tour operator titillated my senses by writing of this extinct volcano. “Grand and Dignified. It is at times capricious, even savage.” All I want is for it not to be shrouded in cloud.
“A worry-wart, aren’t I?”
And worry, I did. This morning I awoke at six and saw the sun shining and a clear blue sky. We’d all agreed last night that we’d take the opportunity for sleep-in and a leisurely ten o’clock start. “Will it cloud over? Should I wake them?”
Come eight o’clock, I am knocking on doors. Levan the guide tells me he’s arranged the picnic lunches to re ready only at ten. “Well, fix it”, I say not too patiently.
And we were on the road by nine!

Wow! Gorgeous pictures, nice video and audio work. You have to wonder who decided where to place that church. It would have been hard for the religious types to decide what would be more enjoyable; the walk to it, or the view from it.
thanks for sharing, looks like everyone is enjoying the adventure.
Dear Michael and Edmundo,
First, let me just say that I am ever amazed at the level of production value of your online adventure “scrapbook.” That alone is impressive.
The music otherworldly. This must be a truly awe inspiring place. I hope y’all are both safe, and look forward to hearing more!
Wonderful. What an extraordinary adventure. Talk about off the beaten track….. As is the music. It’s stunning. Good sound quality too.
Thank you for sharing.
So much beauty… a pallet in God’s hand…
a postcard where everything is great. the mountain that fills the space of the sky, competing in blues, grays and whites. Green’s effort to compete and the pride of man compare! and daring of the man who took the picture
