Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

    I think Oscar is right, but I am going to guess Jordan, just to be different and because Aladdin put in a clue after Oscar's guess.

    It seems that Lynne put on the competitive gear, IMO should play Vikings and Fantasy Premier League as much as she can today, it could be very productive ;)

    Jabal Zubayr is the second highest mountain in Egypt, so you gave the game away with your clue @aladdin!
  • aladdinaladdin Radio Producer LEOnetworkPosts: 1,629 mod
    It's not Jabal Zubayr I've been told that this mount is the second highest mountain let me check :D

    Second Clue: I visited the famous monastery it located at the foot of the mountain and here is some :smile:









    BTW: What I figured it out there are two mountains beside each other one of them with the same monastery name the other I hiked.

    Very close Lynne :D That what I thought too :D

    Everything was great except, unfortunately, I didn't meet any snow there, but it was freezing out there. I think this is the lowest temperature degree I've ever meet :D. It was 4C at the foot of the mountain. They said you can meet the snow here next month :disappointed:

  • rupsilrupsil Posts: 543 ✭✭✭✭✭
    2nd clue:

    Saint Catherine's Monastery
    Mount Sinai
  • VokVok Posts: 535 ✭✭✭
    I think @aroba is absolutely right with her answer.

    - Those mountains belong to Egypt. To be more precise, they are located in the Sinai Peninsula.
    - In the 2nd clue we can see the Saint Catherine Monastery
    - At the beginning I thought you hiked Jabal Zubayr Mountain, which is the 2nd highest in Egypt and is next to Mount Catherine. But as you've already said that it is not, I'll go for Mount Catherine.

    Interesting picture, right above the 2nd video (On the way down): notice the map in the display cabinet!
