After The Snowstorm

Camp 3, Mt. Damavand, Iran

When I got up at 5:20 in the morning to take a short walk, as I could not sleep, the weather was very cold and windy.
After five minutes suddenly the snowstorm begun. Then, as quick as it started, equaly qick it ended after 5 minutes. Then again it snowed for 3 minutes. It shows how changable weather is in the mountains.

On the horizon there is Dobrar (Ghareh Dagh) Ridgeline of the Central Alborz Mountains - an impressive 52 Km long mountain chain that forms a continuous wall in the southeastern portion of the Central Alborz Mountains of northern Iran.
This ridgeline gives rise to more than 20 named peaks and many other unnamed high points.
The elevations of 5 of these peaks exceed 4000 m. and the highest of them is the 4072 m summit of the West Dobrar Peak.
